The sculptor who brought you the 'Sleeping Giant' at Coopers Rock is at it again.

WVU sculpting student Ben Gazsi created a new sculpture for Earth Day this year.

The Black Bear stands nine feet tall and is made out of all natural materials found in the Coopers Rock State Forest.

"It took 10 days; yesterday was my 10th day I'm kind of nitpicking with it on the 11th. First few, I had to make an understructure from tree limbs and trunks then I wrapped grape vines around to make kind of a skeleton, it kind of looked like a skeleton of a bear and then fill it with some leaves and cover it with some hemlock fur to give it a green touch," Gazsi said.

Gazsi said he will definitely do another sculpture for Earth Day next year and hopes to make it a yearly event.
