Long Description:
The Ohrmann Museum is a fascinating place to visit. The yard is filled with Bill Ohrmann's creations. This is a free museum and you are welcome to view, photograph and even sit on the Turtle.

Polar Bear is life size and was created by talented artist Bill Ohrmann in 2005. He is made of stainless steel and is over 9 feet tall.

Polar bears live in one of the planet's coldest environments and depend on a thick coat of insulated fur, which covers a warming layer of fat. Fur even grows on the bottom of their paws, which protects against cold surfaces and provides a good grip on ice. The bear's stark white coat provides camouflage in surrounding snow and ice. But under their fur, polar bears have black skin: the better to soak in the sun's warming rays.

These powerful predators typically prey on seals. In search of this quarry they frequent areas of shifting, cracking ice where seals may surface to breathe air. They also stalk ice edges and breathing holes. These Arctic giants are the masters of their environment and have no natural enemies.

According to Mrs. Ohrmann, Bill was a rancher and artist all of his life. Though he has produced some amazing sculptures, he now limits his creativity to painting that he sells in the gallery.

As a note: all of the sculptures that are on display are "Not for Sale" and placed there purely for the enjoyment and appreciation of Mr. Ohrmann's talents.
