Carolus Linnaeus is known as the "Father of Botany" because he laid the foundation for the classification system using genus and species for all living things. Number 1 in the edition was commissioned for the Linnaeus Gardens of Oklahoma. I loved doing the research for this piece. I used one of his few portraits as my guide. The medallion he proudly wears is the emblem of the Order of the Northern Star awarded him by King Ferdinand. I chose to capture him teaching, which was his great love.
This sculpture is also available in an 18 inch size.
