Awesome Sculpture of Legendary Lindy Hopper Frankie Manning

I'm proud to say that I'm the owner of a limited edition Frankie Manning sculpture created by artist and lindy hopper Ryan Calloway.  Frankie Manning was of course the "ambassador of lindy hop," a treasured dancer and an awesome human being who would have been 100 this year.

Ryan Calloway is a talented digital and analog artist, first creating this bust of Frankie Manning on computer, then creating a cast to produce the physical sculptures out of resin. Each sculpture is coated with a bronze finish that looks and feels amazing. The marble base shows off the work quite nicely, which will sit in a place of honor in the entry of my apartment.

As an added bonus a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Frankie Manning Foundation

See more of Ryan's work on his Etsy page. The Frankie Manning sculpture is sadly no longer available for purchase.
