- Build bridges between Scandinavians and Americans.
Get a Piece of the Rock
When August Werner designed his Leif Erikson statue, he also made a series of busts. We now have the opportunity to cast a new
series of those busts from Prof. Werner's original form. They'll be available in bronze, resin, or plaster, and will be 18 inches tall.
