It shows Peter Voulkos’ master piece “Crazy Horse” in progress at our facility.
Peter worked on “Crazy Horse” together with Piero Mussi since the first ideas about the piece and he was so excited to see the final results that he used to come to check on it also at night time.
It is a unique artwork and no mold was taken from it, since it was made straight from the wax.
Crazy Horse was finished in 2002 and it was Voulkos’ last piece in bronze.
