Sculptor Victor states “The many virtues of the hero-king Robert the Bruce are revived in my iconic and intensely real sculpture: courage and patience, strength and dignity, foresight and resolve.” This idealized figure emphasizes action and vitality. It worthily represents Robert the Bruce’s colossal deeds and his mythic status in the national fabric.
“A gift from God” is how Benjamin Victor describes his ability to create spectacular works of figurative sculpture. Benjamin joined the ranks of Michelangelo, Bernini, and Daniel Chester French by receiving his first large commission at only 23 years old. At age 26, he became the youngest artist ever to have a sculpture in our Nation’s foremost collection of figurative sculpture, the National Statuary Hall in the United States Capitol. Art critics and organizations, including the National Sculpture Society in New York City, continue to recognize the aesthetic and conceptual integrity of Benjamin’s artwork. His passion and drive clearly show in each of his unique and profound creations. With expressive features, exquisite detail, and thought-provoking content, the work of Benjamin Victor is sure to take its place among the great masterpieces of art history.
