Having lived in East Africa now for 40 years, Kenya is where he calls home today.
Africa has for many years been David’s inspiration. Being an avid
outdoorsman all of his life,
he has gained an intimate knowledge of his subjects and does his utmost to create
a reflection of the character and life of the various animals he sculpts.
No task is too small for David as his challenge in each sculpture he produces
is to take cold, hard heavy metal, and create an animal that looks alive and
light on its feet. David has unwittingly fulfilled an apprenticeship suggested
by Leonardo da Vinci 400 years previously, “in order to create, you must know
your subject as if you made it yourself.”
Those individuals, who have acquired Schaefer Sculptures, do so because they
recognize the qualities of artistic integrity and meticulous workmanship.
In the years to come the value of a “Schaefer” will further increase their worth to the collector.
