Not sure,but I suspect it was modeled in clay then this was was cast in wax.

There is a note from the artist"one wax of Grey Wolf".

It's a lost wax piece for casting - probably bronze for this one.  They encase the wax model in hard casting plaster with a vent hole.  The plaster is then heated to melt the wax out, leaving a perfect negative void of the sculpture.  The bronze is then poured in and once it's hardened, the plaster is broken off and you have your art piece - a bronze replica of the wax sculpture.
