“The Challenge” is bronze and 23″ tall. This is a series of 9, as are all of Tony’s bronze pieces. The A/P (Artists Proof) was sold so the next one sold will be #1 of 9. Tony has these made when ordered, and it will take approximately 2 months. A small deposit is required.
“While developing this piece I was confronted with some health issues that seemed overwhelming and I felt I was pushing a huge boulder uphill. The Greek legend of Sisyphus, condemned by the gods for eternity to repeatedly roll a boulder up a hill only to have it roll down again once he got it to the top, as a metaphor for the individual’s persistent struggle against the essential absurdity of life. I was commissioned to create a ten & a half foot version of The Challenge”.
