What you see here is the work of an 82 year old artist who was asked to help the museum with a project that will raise money by it's sale... it is a custom creation and not a production piece.
This "Huskie" is hand made. No two will be alike. The work and the effort needed for you to even see this creation was amazing. Created by hand, first there was a hand carved, custom clay mockup. After trial and error, the clay was used to create a mold for this Huskie. Then, the actual creation in fiber glass was fashioned using time honored methods. This is a Limited Edition item and a limited number will ever be built.
This is a scale version of the mascot that greeted visitors to the factory... a large version was over the entryway door. A few years ago, and identical Huskie made a RARE visit to the Brockway Truck Show, held right here in Cortland, N.Y.
Our friend, the Huskie, stands 13 inches tall, which includes the base... He is 19 inches long. The base is 13 inches wide at the front and 10 inches wide at the back. He weighs in at a hefty 18 lbs!
