I love this sculpture. Does anyone know who the artist is, its name and anything else about this piece? (I can't find anything on the web to share with you).

I also find it intriguing how there's a bronze of a bull moose down the park promenade some half a mile away; having a cow and calf moose here and the bull moose there would have been a beautiful example of art imitating nature even more.
