Olana Bench by David DeSantis
The Olana Bench II is the second in an iconic series created by artist, David DeSantis. Hand-forged entirely of bronze, this unique sculpture is inspired by Frederic Church’s original design for naturalistic benches at Olana. Depicting birds, floating lily pads, irises, frogs and turtles, the bench is a breathtakingly beautiful masterwork perfect for exhibit in a reflective spot in a garden glen or elegant interior space. The artist has devoted the past 25 years to disciplined training in traditional and contemporary forging techniques. The Olana Bench II will be delivered to the winning bidder within a 100-mile radius of NYC, courtesy of Stair Galleries.
