This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Anthony J. (A.J.) Obara, Jr. (1948)

An animalier and wildlife sculptor, he attended art classes at the Delaware Art Museum as a child and began sculpting in 1972 at the age of 24.  Self-taught in the manner of Antoine-Louis Barye, Pierre Jules Mene and Isidore Bonheur, Obara casts each bronze using the traditional cire perdue “lost wax” method and is particularly well-known for his patinas.
