Artist Bio

Taken from the sculptor's website:

Not much is known about the childhood of Andrew Paul Theodore Bergholtz, but legend indicates that he was raised by a family of timber wolves in the Carpathian Mountains until the age of 13. Taken in by a blind hermit monk, Andy was taught to study the world around him using senses other than that of sight.

It's said that this unique tutelage resulted in a heightened, almost super-human sense of touch within the young boy, who naturally developed a passion for creating things with his hands. At 18, Andy joined a group of traveling gypsies and honed his skills by offering hand-carved charms and talismans to the villagers he met on his journeys through eastern Europe.

Although his exact whereabouts are currently unknown, it's believed that Bergholtz has settled somewhere along the Mississippi River in North America, resuming his hermit ways and raising a family of his own. Discoveries of new works by the mysterious craftsman are being reported in increasing numbers, although the authenticity of such artifacts has not yet been confirmed.
