About the Artist

Artist: Carl Vanderheyden

Artist Statement:
Tundra the mammoth's name came from a crowd-sourced vote on social media. Local artists Carl Vanderheyden and John Koester collaborated to capture the strength and movement of an extinct Pleistocene creature brought back to life. Sculpted from recycled steel oil tanks, Vanderheyden's portfolio includes life-like animals, birds and angels.

Tundra’s earthy transformations visually lend themselves to the environment and a lasting longevity. In this sculpture, his unique artistic approach transforms Koester's vision and design of the beast. Individually, both Green Bay artists' work can be seen throughout Wisconsin and across the nation.

A gift from the Romaine and Mary Schanock Family Foundation. Special thanks to Renco Machine Company, Inc.
