A bear skull cast in copper sits on a display shelf in the Kenai City Council meeting chambers on Wednesday, June 15, 2016 in Kenai, Alaska. It was cast by welder and blacksmith Scott Hamann of Kenai's Metal Magic Foundry, who said "there's something about playing with molten metal that really gets me going." "The end product is interesting, and I like the end product, but to me it's more about the process. I like the melting of the metal, I love the actual doing of it just as much as the object I make. Hamann estimated it wieghs about 45 pounds.
