We are honored to offer a wonderful bronze by super artist Brett Livingstone Strong. It is titled Our Vulnerable World and was produced in 1991. It measures 8½" by 14½" by 6". We have found an on-line price for $6,875. This price was for one of the Regular Edition of 175 examples. In addition, a more limited Museum Edition of only 25 examples were cast. Our bronze is one of these very limited special 25 Museum Proofs (# 20 of 25). The Museum Edition is even more expensive than the Regular Edition, but we have been unable to locate any other copy of the Museum Edition for comparable pricing. Not only does our example include the COA, but it comes in its original box with form insert intact. It is in like-original condition with no dings, scratches, or damages of any kind. Provenance: Gallery Rodeo, Beverly Hills, CA. Certificate of Authenticity from Gallery Rodeo. The COA gives a complete description of Strong’s analysis of this bronze. The two arrow parts are removable and will be placed on the foam pocket that was “carved” to hold them, and they are easily removed and then replaced on the body by screwing them back into their appropriate threaded “sockets”.
The following is from Wikipedia: "Brett Livingstone Strong (born 31 October 1953) is an Australian-born artist, best known for his sculptures of Hollywood celebrities.
In 1972, Strong was commissioned to paint the royal invitation for the opening of the Sydney Opera House by Queen Elizabeth II.
In 1977, Strong carved John Wayne's face in a 12½-ton boulder that had fallen onto the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. In 1979, he sold it to an Arizona company and it currently resides in the library of the Lubbock Christian University in Lubbock, Texas.
Strong created NASA's National Space Exploration Monument for display in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. In July 1994, Vice-President Al Gore announced this monument honouring the men and women of the United States Space Program and celebrating the anniversary of man's landing on the moon.
After Debbie Rowe, an ex-wife of Michael Jackson, had nominated Strong for knighthood, the Duke of Gardham made Strong a knight in October 2009, in recognition of Strong's charitable work for children.
