This is a rare original "artists proof" sculpture of Joshua L. Chamberlain by artist Ron Tunison. This historical sculpture is a very scarce number 12 of only 25 produced and is hand numbered and signed by the artist. The sculpture measures 13 1/2 inches tall overall and is of a cold cast-bronze on a solid walnut base.

Ron Tunison (1947 – 2013) was born in Richmond Hill, N.Y., and was a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. He was a scholarship student at the NYC National Academy where he continued his sculpting studies. He went on to become an internationally acclaimed sculptor of nine heroic bronze monuments: "General W. Crawford," near Little Round Top on the Gettysburg Battlefield, the “Friend to Friend Masonic Memorial" on Steinwehr Ave., the bas-relief "Delaware State Memorial" on Taneytown Road, and "The Gettysburg Civil War Women's Memorial" at Evergreen Cemetery. On the Antietam National Battlefield is Tunison's "Irish Brigade Monument." "The Bivouac" is at the entrance to the Civil War Soldier's Museum at Pamplin Historical Park near Petersburg, Va. "The Delaware Continentals" heroic size bronze of three advancing Revolutionary War soldiers stands atop a twenty-five foot granite pedestal in front of Legislative Hall at Dover, Delaware. At Ringgold Gap in Atlanta, Ga., is Ron's life-size General Patrick Cleburne. Dedication ceremonies for “General John Barry, U.S. Naval Commander”, took place May 10th, 2014 at U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.  Ron was the entrepreneur behind his own company Historical Sculptures, where he sculpted smaller statues.  [sl/ld]

NOTE: We do not have the original packing box for this statue; given that it has easily bendable/breakable parts, it would be preferable to pick this item up in the shop. We will, though, ship upon request and pack it as carefully as we can using spray styrofoam. Extra shipping will be required due to weight and cost of packing materials.
