Teepee at the BOB!!

Roger Wermers's avatar Roger Wermers

My entry is Teepee at the BOB. Since I am displaying in a 22 foot teepee, I am featuring ten large Native American portraits. My hand-carved stone sculptures demonstrate my personal techniques and signature style of highly detailed, emotional faces, not typically seen carved in stone. These sculptures evoke comments of disbelief at the extreme realism in eyes that search your soul, the open, speaking mouth and weathered skin texture. South Dakota sculptor, South Dakota stone! Weight: 200-600 pounds. Feature sculpture: Four Brothers, four personalities in one stone! "Its only a stone until it speaks to me!" - Roger Wermers
