A bull moose (Alces alces) makes his way across the shore of Gunflint Lake with his mate and calf in this diorama at the Bell Museum of Natural History . At the museum, two floors of dioramas display all of Minnesota's habitats, along with the birds, animals, plants and insects that populate the state. Constructed between 1920 and the late 1940s, the Bell Museum's dioramas illustrate what Minnesota was like before the ax and plow. The background painting is by Francis L. Jaques (pronounced "JAY-kwees") ; the foreground construction is by Walter J. Breckenridge. The diorama was completed in 1946 and was a gift of Emily McMillan in honor of physician and ornithologist Thomas Sadler Roberts. Thanks to Don Luce at the museum for permission to photograph.
