Triad by Phillip Levine has been a part of Martin Selig’s collection for over 30 years. This 14-foot sculpture of two women standing on a mans’ shoulders was built to symbolize themes of weightlessness and freedom. The elongated limbs and gravity-defying visual of this sculpture is characteristic of Levine’s sculpting style and can be seen in many of his other works.
