The second link shows photos of the "Family Of Man" being made by the request of Mr. Blenko during for The Governor Of West Virginia's visit to the Blenko Factory in 2005. The link stated the degree of difficulty in forming and creating the "Family Of Man" art glass statue. The link shows a photo of two of the statues that were created that day (One for The Governor of West Virginia and one for The Blenko Visitors Center). The link states that there is a "Family Of Man" Art Glass Statue in The Blenko Museum-Visitors Center.

We do have a reserve on this rare piece of Blenko to preserve the integrity of the sale. Upon request we can provide an additional 10-15 photos showing various photos of the statue. We would need your email address to enable us to send additional photos. Our photos can't do justice to the stunning facets of this unique work of art. Some of the photos show the air bubbles indicative of hand blown glass which may appear distorted due to various angles and reflections on the clear wavey glass. It was challenging to edit our 300 plus photos down to the amount we were allowed to post (Each one provided a unique view of this exciting piece of art making it difficult to decide which photo could convey the true essence of the art glass statue). The lucite plinth is not included in the sale. Please view the following links for information on this outstanding rare example of Blenko Art Glass.
