Avard Fairbanks - MORONI - Mormon Art/Angel


Item History and Pricing
Information:
Country/Region of Manufacture: United StatesMaterial: Bronze
Original Description:
This is a bronze & gold leaf patina sculptor done by the famous Avard T Fairbanks in 1972. This sculptor weight is 15 lbs. and is number 65 of 100 done. It is from the same cast that is done when a sculptor will do a small sculptor to be approved and then followed up by a much larger sculptor(s) as this was done. The larger originals are on the Jordan River Temple, Seattle Temple, Washington DC Temple and the Mexico City Temple. The smaller originals of the 100 are given to family ...members, Mormon Church officials, and some are sold to the special invites to help raise funds to offset the building expenses as this one was. No others are made.
Avard T Fairbanks is recognized as one of the most premier American sculptors and has done a number of works of art not just for the LDS/Mormon buildings and visitor centers but other American locations and landmarks see the attached link to his Wikipedia link https://www.mormonwiki.com/Avard_Fairbanks:_Mormon_Artist
It was very hard to evaluate this value of this sculptor since it was done in 1972 and it is hard to find anyone who has a sculptor like this in their family collection that want to sell it. Most are located at LDS landmarks or visitor centers to be viewed and enjoyed. The last one that we could find out of the 100 was sold over 10 years ago for $7000.00
The statue is 28.5" over all height and weighs 15 lbs.
