These are Fantastical Faces of Peter Rockwell (one of the sons of the famous American artist Norman Rockwell). His “Grendel’s Folly” is an animated assemblage of whimsical “monster” portraits. Created on location at the Norman Rockwell Museum’s (Stockbridge, Massachusetts), from a nine-foot block of Indiana limestone, which is known to carve easily and weather well, the piece was sculpted with an assortment of tools that included pneumatic hammers and hand chisels. It is one of many sculptures the artist has created over the years that feature monsters and gargoyles. I photographed the four sides of this sculpture and then combined them in one image (really monstrous job). The rest is just my imagination, PS CC and Topaz.
