"Wolf" news paper pulp sculpture with polychrome colors h 4" the photographs don't do them justice. The sculpture is very well done from the sculpt to the color work by a fantastic outsider folk artist Michael Lee Ford. News paper pulp sculpture of a Wolf signed dated titled on base, done june 9 2003 while in 23 hour lock down at Telford New Boston prison in Texas. Michael Lee Ford was in prison, serving a 35-year sentence for a 1989 robbery. After hearing of the death of his mother in 1996, Ford was inspired to create a sculpture of Jesus Christ. He developed a method of turning newspaper back into paper pulp and then sculpting from it.Ford was featured in a 2004 issue of Juxtapoz magazine (with Iggy Pop on the cover!) and in “Outside The Lines” a documentary about self-taught artists produced by Markus Wittmann for Blue Rhino Pictures, which is available through his website.
