Stephen Otten unveils his sculpture "David"

Stephen Otten unveils his sculpture “David”

Statue.com’s Gloria and Ann had the pleasure of attending the unveiling of a special sculpture. It is quite unusual to see this type of sculpture done within the United States, much less in the Midwest. The sculptor’s material of choice was bonded marble, more commonly used in Italy.

The building material is not the only special attribute of the sculpture. The statue unveiled was crafted by Steve Otten. His ambition was inspired by famous sculptor Michelangelo and his rendition of David during a trip to Italy. This trip came at a special point in Otten’s life as he was suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome from his career as a Navy SEAL. After his trip, Otten focused his energy upon studying and training at local community colleges and an art studio. Working on his sculpture has helped him cope with his experience of war and provided an outlet for a passion and determination.

The beauty of art is that it can transcend just aesthetics and take on an element of healing and hope. We believe Steve Otten has proven just that.

One of our favorite holidays at Statue.com is coming up. You’re probably thinking ‘Halloween,’ right? While it is true we do love Halloween, there is another holiday near and dear to our heart, Veterans Day. Every year Edwardsville, the town we are located in, hosts a Veteran’s Day Parade. We throw a big party at the Bohm Building, which is along the parade route, to celebrate and thank those who have served in the military. We are so grateful for those and their loved ones who have made this sacrifice.
