Three Monumental Sculptures

Three monumental sculptures that George Anthonisen has been developing since 1979 can stand alone but shown together, each compliments the other. As a whole, they make a statement about the whole human family. As of November 2016, Caryatid and Give Us Grace were installed on the grounds of the Michener Museum thanks to the generosity of benefactors Susan Klein, Mary C. Palmer, and Robert M. Yacubian and are now part of the Museum's permanent collection.
