Randy Groves' LORE AND LEGEND series takes the theme of conflict to a more universal level in his Drummer Boy figure and Knight & Child, but also delves into the cultures of Native Peoples in the Iroquois False Face Dancer and  Shape Shifter sculptures.

For the budget-minded, Randy Groves has also made available smaller-sized busts of renowned Civil War figures in the Desktop Series.

Shortly before the passing of his dear friend, composer Earle Hagen, the scope of Randy Groves' work widened into a new area as he sought to capture the essence of Earle Hagen in a life-size bust which is now being cast. Unique photos below show the wax edition taken at the foundry.
