Vic Payne Monument Near Completion

IMG_0402It is one thing to stand high on balcony and view this sculpture and yet another is to stand at it’s base and view it. The size and volume of the piece captures you, but the motion, action and emotion captivates your very being. It is spectacular. I am not sure where it will eventually be placed but wherever it goes it will impress those who view it. I don’t know how many know that inside each of these monuments is a complicated armature of stainless steel which holds the shape and integrity of the sculpture. Sometimes the interior is quite the engineering feat. It needs to hold the weight of the exterior bronze and be able to withstand the winds of a hurricane or a hundred students that want to see how many of them can ride the piece at the same time. All this needs to be constructed in a manner to stand up the these natural forces as well as the man made kind. This is why you need an experienced foundry to cast your work. Adonis has been in business for more than 28 years now and has many, many such larger than life size pieces under their belts. If you have such a project, please give us a call.
