American sculpture is well populated with animal imagery - even today. Jim Eppler is fond of depicting images of nature in his work. He has been praised for his lifelike creations and interpretations. In his bronzes, details of movement are subtly emphasized, such as in Raven V. In partnership with Raven V, Raven III depicts the subtle movements of the birds. Eppler was fond of creating images of nature and has earned praise for his lifelike bronzes.
