Whitehall Monster Carving
In 2012, our team took a trip to Whitehall, NY, where we learned about the local Bigfoot history in the Skenesborough museum & took home a unique souvenir that inspired the birth of The Forest Fleur product line. There were about 6 Sasquatch carvings in the dusty museum showcase, each hand-carved/painted by a local townsman. Unfortunately, the artist has since passed & all the figures in the showcase have sold.
We really wanted to recreate our Whitehall experience by working with a carving artist to replicate these incredible statues so we can celebrate the Bigfoot history of Whitehall & commemorate the birth of The Forest Fleur. We will be using a portion of the proceeds to donate some statues to the Skenesborough museum for them to sell in their gift shop showcase in order to raise funds for their facility.
These statues are each one of a kind & have different features, just like the ones once sold at the museum. We wanted each figure to be different & appear handmade. Any inconsistencies, brush strokes or imperfections are purposeful & stylized. These are intended for indoor use, however they are sprayed with a coating to make them durable & smooth.
