Overview

I first created the Immortal sculpture in a table top size, I was subsequently commissioned to execute the sculpture in two enlarged sizes, 11ft. and 14ft. The 11ft is in a private collection and the 14ft is on public display at Plant Riverside in Savannah GA. Both are bronze.
The sculpture depicts Ludvig van Beethoven in a creative frenzy, his pockets stuffed with spare notes, he is swirling the music around himself, pulling notes from among the stars while creating the 5th symphony (first few bars are on the music staff).
