The Valentine - A Symbol of Enduring Love
The life-sized bronze sculpture entitled Valentine is part of Evergreen-Washelli’s permanent collection. It is the creation of sculptor George W. Lundeen, whose skill in realistically and sensitively capturing his subjects makes his work irresistible. Lundeen’s work evokes emotion from the viewer–memories of a loved grandparent, parent, or perhaps a spouse. Gentle memories can have great healing power.
