I don't know where Gary Price's bronzes are cast, but I would assume in
the US. They are superb.
I have a maquette of his statue of Twain sitting on a park bench
reading a book, which I would describe as more of a model than a
maquette since it seems to include every detail of the finished larger
statue. I've tried sitting in it, but it makes my butt look big.
