Idaho Artist Sculpts Arnold
A 9-foot-tall clay sculpture of Arnold Schwarzenegger designed by an Idaho Artist has received the final nod from the former governor, actor, and body builder. The former California visited northern Idaho Wednesday to suggest a few modifications to the sculpture that is destined to stand in a rippling, full-flex pose outside his childhood home that is now a museum in Thal, Austria. Schwarzenegger tells the Lewiston Tribune that he chose Lewiston artist Ralph Crawford to create the statue because of Crawford’s passion and ability to produce a dramatic sculpture. Crawford says he has already started work on a new sculpture of Schwarzenegger showing him from his time as governor.
