Self taught through arduous repetition and fine tuning, both the subject and sculptor are readily identifiable in this awe-inspiring shadowbox display. Framed to dimensions of 26-3/4 x 28-3/4”, blue-on-white double matting form upper-case proclamations of “LOU GEHRIG” and “THE IRON HORSE.” These flank the centerpiece, which is a bronze bust of the tragically felled Yankee hero. Chiseled to three-dimensional proportions with absolutely incredible detail not limited to facial wrinkles, shadows and the sparkle in Gehrig’s eyes, the portrayal is incredibly lifelike from Gehrig’s expression to his pinstriped jersey. Along the lower border, artist Armand LaMontagne has engraved his name. LaMontagne has sculpted works in both the Baseball and Basketball Halls of Fame. This is a breathtaking piece just waiting for proud display.
