A few years back, Monumental Art Works’ sculptor, Viktor, created a series of large busts carved from granite focused on ocean pioneers and explorers. The name of the series is named Vuam. The first sculpture to be featured in our Vuam series is Phil Nuytten. As you see in the top picture in the collage, the initial shape of Phil Nuytten can be seen in the giant granite block. Following the pictures down counter clockwise, a more defined image of the subject. And finally, the other two pictures showcase the Phil Nuytten bust in it’s full glory. Viktor lives and works out of the South side of Chicago.
