Vancouver police are investigating the theft of a $24,000 bronze sculpture that was pilfered from a West Side art gallery early Monday morning.

According to Vesna Zaric with the Petley Jones Gallery, the piece was kept outside the Granville Street gallery's front entrance at the top of a short flight of steps.

Because the statue, which is more than a metre tall, weighs close to 113 kilograms (250 pounds), Zaric said the gallery had never suspected anyone would try — or be able — to steal it.

From Paris, with love: Rodin's Thinker at Abu Dhabi Louvre

  From Paris, with love: Rodin's Thinker at Abu Dhabi Louvre His head bent down, chin resting on one hand, a furrowed brow and pressed lips: The Thinker, possibly one of the most famous sculptures of all time, has found a new home at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. The bronze sculpture, on loan for a year from the Rodin Museum in Paris, is one of the original castings made by Auguste Rodin, sometime between 1881 and 1882. "The sculpture itself is majestic and it's extremely powerful," said Souraya Noujaim, in charge of collections at the museum in the United Arab Emirates' capital. "Rodin is one of the most iconic and most universal artists, so we've got really to have it in Louvre Abu Dhabi.

VANCOUVER — Police in Vancouver are looking for a thief who may be lugging around a large bronze beaver. The sculpture was stolen from a truck that was parked overnight on East 61 Avenue last Wednesday.

"Just a few weeks ago we wanted to have it on an indoor display for another show we were setting up, and we could not move it," she said.

"We never really suspected that being here, and having these stairs and having that weight of a sculpture [there] would ever be an issue for anyone to attempt to pick it up."

The piece, titled "After Marino Marini," depicts an abstract human form riding a horse. It was sculpted by Vancouver artist Fahri Aldin, who is known internationally for his painting and sculptural work, Zaric said.

She said she's concerned the thief may have stolen it for its value as scrap metal.

"It would be a horrible idea to take it for scrap," she said. "It's a unique piece, and there will never be another one made like that."

Security video captured by a neighbouring gallery depicts a man dragging the statue out of the gallery entrance, loading it onto a dolly, then towing it around the corner and through a nearby parking lot.

Zaric said no one at the gallery recognized the man.

Vancouver police confirmed they had opened a file into the theft, but said they had not interviewed the gallery owner yet.
