In 2019 I decided to create an old mining sculpture that began with an 1890’s ore cart from an old gold mine.
When researching old ore carts to establish their dimensions I discovered photographs taken by Chuck McBride of an actual cart discovered in an old gold mine in California.
In recognition of his contribution I have named this sculpture “McBride’s Mountain”.
The amethyst geode was purchased from Bruno Burgermeister, a Swiss Canadian who fell in love with the mountains and forests of the Kootenays in British Columbia. Sadly, Bruno passed away in 2021.
