In recognition of the commemorative 40th Anniversary of America’s launch to the moon, Chabot Fine Art Gallery unveils the “Man Reaching To Outer Space” sculpture by world-renowned sculptor Felix de Weldon. The sculpture was created in 1957 and was never published. It is now cast in bronze with a special limited edition of 195 pieces. Included in the purchase is a signed Certificate of Authenticity by Felix de Weldon before his passing.
“Man reaching To Outer Space” was inspired by the space age and represents mankind united in pursuit of its dream to reach beyond the earth’s limitations and conquer the heavens.
