Large Stainless Steel Triangular Obelisk Sculpture, Garden or Yard


Large stainless steel triangular obelisk sculpture for the garden, courtyard or yard. This sculpture comes from a local estate of an owner of a local bank. I believe this was commissioned in the 1970s or early 80s for his yard, it is very well made! It is unsigned, but was told it is by William Conrad Severson. Sculpture is 16" x 16"x 16" at mounting plate, base is 12" x 12" x 12". Total height is 108.25" and top is 4"x 4" x 4". This sculpture reminds me of a leg of the St. Louis Arch, designed by Eero Saarinen. Sculptur by William Conrad Severson, b.1924-d.1999 Internationally known sculptor of corporate, institutional, liturgical & private commissions. His sculptures can be seen in 28 states & in Saudi Arabia, Singapore & Moscow. He was a co-founder & former president of the St. Louis Sculptors Gallery & the first artist-in-residence at the Missouri Council of the Arts program. Many of his works - which were done in stainless steel, copper, bronze, lead, concrete, wood and stone A contemporary of Harry Bertoia, One of his last major sculptures, the Millennium Spire, is located in Belleville, Illinois.
