Man Carv­ing His Own Des­tiny 
Con­sid­ered Albin Polasek’s sig­na­ture piece, Man Carv­ing his Own Des­tiny, was cre­ated while Polasek stud­ied under Charles Grafly at the Penn­syl­va­nia Acad­emy of the Fine Arts in Philadel­phia, Penn­syl­va­nia. Rem­i­nis­cent of  Michelangelo’s series of Slaves, all were struck by the fact that a sculp­tural image as obvi­ous as a man chis­el­ing him­self out of stone had not been seen quite that way before. This lim­ited edi­tion bronze cast made from an orig­i­nal mold, stands 19” high with a French var­nish patina in rich dark brown or verdi­gris. 
Bronze, 19″ high x 11″ wide x 6.5″ deep

Vic­to­ri­ous Christ
Polasek con­sid­ered the Vic­to­ri­ous Christ his supreme achieve­ment. This faith­ful repro­duc­tion of the orig­i­nal bronze sculp­ture by Albin Polasek was orig­i­nally com­mis­sioned in 1939 by St. Cecilia’s Catholic Cathe­dral in Omaha, Nebraska. Christ’s face is shown look­ing upward as he tells his Father, ‘for­give them, for they know not what they do’. Polasek’s mod­el­ing of the fig­ure reveals his pro­found sen­si­tiv­ity to form and expres­sion. This spe­cial edi­tion of the Vic­to­ri­ous Christ is cast in resin with a hand-rubbed patina. It includes a notch in the back for hang­ing.

Mother Cry­ing Over the World
Ini­tially mod­eled in 1941 as the US entered World War II, this grief-stricken fig­ure of a woman is incon­solable, as she con­tem­plates the future of the world’s chil­dren. A rare polit­i­cally moti­vated work by sculp­tor Albin Polasek, this work remains the most requested piece in Polasek’s cat­a­log. This cast bronze fig­ure is repro­duced from the orig­i­nal work found in the col­lec­tion of the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculp­ture Gar­dens. The avail­able patina is either a hand-rubbed French var­nish or verdi­gris.

Emily
One of Albin Polasek’s most beloved works is the kneel­ing female fig­ure of a young harpist.
A wed­ding gift to his sec­ond wife, Emily, the face of a young Emily radi­ates peace­ful con­tent­ment as she plays her harp. The orig­i­nal Emily, 1961, is located on the Front Patio of the Polasek home, a sec­ond ver­sion is in the City of  Win­ter Park’s Cen­tral Park. In 2005, the Albin Polasek Foun­da­tion com­mis­sioned sculp­tor Lau­rie Ward to cre­ate a small replica of the enchant­ing Emily sculp­ture to be made exclu­sively for the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculp­ture Gar­dens to offer to pri­vate col­lec­tors.  The exclu­sive lim­ited edi­tion 2005 casts of Emily are solid bronze and stand 16 ”  high, 7” wide and 9” deep. The patina is a rich deep brown with an ele­gant French var­nish fin­ish.
