THE UNKNOWN TARZAN OF HENRY VAN WOLF

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011

When I had the privilege of visiting the studio of the great Henry Van Wolf, this last week, I saw this small sculpture atop a cabinet. It is a rendering of Van Wolf's dream of an heroic Tarzan statue never completed. I took the liberty of taking out the backgrounds, so that a measure of the sculptor's vision might be enjoyed by today's residents of the San Fernando Valley.
