February’s answer: This sculpture, titled “Blue,” is made of granite and glass and stands at one of the entrances to the University of West Alabama in Livingston. Artist Antoinette Prien Schultze of Elliot, Maine, installed the sculpture in 2006. “I carved the sculpture in 2003 and feel the setting at UWA is perfect,” Schultze says in an email. “It is a heroic sculpture in form … I love the earthy primal presence of granite, coupled with the ethereal quality of the glass creating strength and fragility.” (Photo by Allison Law of Alabama Living). The randomly drawn correct guess winner is Connie Marine of Livingston, Alabama.
