Five life size iconic wood sculptures, each a champion of their sport. Meticulously detailed, each is hand carved from a single piece of a tree trunk. Boxing champion Muhammad Ali, in black walnut, standing over 8 feet tall. Grand Rapids own boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, also in black walnut. UFC fighting champion Conor Mcgregor, in maple. UFC female fighting champion Cris Cyborg, from a white oak tree. And, soon to be completed, bodybuilding champion Arnold Schwarzenegger, being carved from a black oak tree.
