Philip Grausman has risen to become one of the most well-acclaimed portrait sculptors of his time. Grausman's portraits take on a realistic nature, giving life and personality to his figures. Large-scale ‘Leucantha’ stands tall with a stoic persona. Grausman's fine workmanship and choice of material, cast aluminum, gives ‘Leucantha’ a silky complexion making her seem ageless--belonging to no specific period. The female head is carried gracefully on a muscled neck imparting inner strength and self-assuredness.
