On The Wings of Love

On The Wings of Love

One of our valued clients shared with us the following story, illustrating how wonderful it is when art can stand as a lasting tribute to love.

My husband and I built and flew an airplane from 2000 to 2004!  At one of the small airports that we stopped at I saw this statue and loved it.  I saw it again later at a local garden tour.  When my husband passed away suddenly in 2005, I remembered this statue.  I had no idea how to find it.  I finally contacted the Dubuque, Iowa airport where I had first seen it.  The manager there was so nice.  He said they were remodeling and the statue was in storage, but he would find out the sculptor and get back in touch with me.  He did and I went straight to the Gary Price website and there it was, WINGS! I ordered one for me and a smaller one for a friend that had been such a big help at the time of my husband’s passing.  I will never forget that the first one I ordered didn’t seem large enough for the area that I had.  That was not a problem!  I returned it to Gary Price and immediately received a larger one that fits the space perfectly!  It is right outside my sewing room window (where I spend a lot of time!) and I love looking out and seeing it (summer or winter!)  WINGS is the epitome of flight and reminds me of my husband and how much he loved flying.
