Grant Wood was known to use found materials in some of his works including Lillies of the Alley. Bounty was created in that spirit using many recovered materials. Here is a statement from the artist about the creation of the statue. “I used stone and wood I recovered over the years. Carnegie Library CRMA stone, Montrose Hotel marble, Stone City limestone, wood from 5 Turner Alley, Ideal Theater, Kurik House, Cook’s Pond, Mytak Bldg, Suchy Bldg, and a few others. His coat is covered with original and reproductions of a series of drawings GW did for David Turner that appeared in The CR Republican newspaper from 1925-27. The back of the statue is fiberglass low relief combining Wood’s 1938-9 paintings Tame Flowers, Wild Flowers, Fruits and Vegetables. It’s painted in muted pastels to mimic Currier and Ives prints.”
