High Country King 3D Sculpture by Dolan Geiman

Winning Bid: $10,000.00

100 percent of the proceeds will go to The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Geiman repurposed the same carbon fiber wrapped around Christensen Arms rifle barrels to craft the unique shape of the ram’s horns. The carbon fiber was cut, heated, and stretched around a wireframe, then treated, painted, and decorated. Its strength, rigidity, and incredible lightweight offered a unique alternative to Geiman’s typical medium and creates a truly distinct piece, melding materials of the past and the future. Throughout the ram’s body, viewers are invited to discover the forgotten relics woven within the materials: rifle casings, old dominoes, even a police badge!

Christensen Arms is pleased to present a partnership with Denver artist Dolan Geiman, a mixed media artist and found object devotee known for intricate paper collages and 3D sculptures. The challenge: fashion a ram mount using scraps of our carbon fiber material in Geiman’s signature faux taxidermy style.

This sculpture is a compilation of metal materials reclaimed over the years – in various cities, rural towns and in transit to and from art fairs – as well as an exciting new element: Christensen Arms’ signature aerospace-grade carbon fiber. Geiman repurposed the same carbon fiber wrapped around Christensen Arms’ rifle barrels to craft the unique shape of the ram’s horns. The carbon fiber was cut, heated and stretched around a wire frame, then treated, painted and decorated. Its strength, rigidity and incredible light weight offered a unique alternative to Geiman’s typical medium and creates a truly distinct piece, melding materials of the past and the future.

Throughout the ram’s body, viewers are invited to discover the forgotten relics woven within the materials: rifle casings, old dominoes, even a police badge! As a child growing up in the Shenandoah Valley, Geiman’s favorite activity was exploring abandoned farmsteads to hunt for items to rescue from within the homes. Geiman’s passion for breathing new life into discarded materials continued during his time in Chicago, when the neglected steel towns of Northwest Indiana and the South side of Chicago proved to be gold mines of reclaimable treasures. Now a fixture in Denver, Geiman’s work expands on the possibilities hidden in abandoned materials: finding the unexpected in the wild, in the city and everywhere in between to create wonder by turning the unexpected into art.

We are pleased to present Christensen Arms fans with this unique opportunity to support innovation both in art and rifle manufacturing. The Dolan Geiman x Christensen Arms 3D Ram sculpture is available via online auction through Sunday, June 27th at 6pm. 100 percent of proceeds will go to The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Crating and transport of the sculpture to the winning bidder’s home will be arranged by the Dolan Geiman studio.
