"I had been thinking about wall displays, masks if you will, of the heads of my favorite sculptures, when one of my gallery owners told me of a couple that would like a profile of the eight-month-old face of "Guinevere," for a memorial. I thought about two seconds, said, "Yes!" and even constructed it so it can be used as an urn, if desired."
"I understand this couple's grief. After I buried my first dachshund Anna, I kept the sculpture of her, "Dreaming of Tomatoes," on the end of the kitchen counter for weeks. I stroked it every time I passed it, and I am happy that my piece reminds them of their departed friend. In it, her memory will be celebrated with each passing glance."
"In the spring of 2005, I saw my model Guinevere for the first time in years. She'd grown long hair on her ears. WOW! A mystery was solved! My discovery of longer hair on the ears of five-year-old Guinevere helped me understand why "Over the Rainbow" was adopted by those who love Labs, and why "Three Faces of Guinevere" has also been adopted by lovers of Labs, as well as those who know and love young Goldens."
"May this sculpture bring you peace and help you celebrate the life of your four-legged friend." - Joy Kroeger Beckner
