Faces of Indiana for the Millennium

Faces of Indiana for the Millennium

Charles R. (“C. R.”) Schiefer was a stone sculptor based in Martinsville, Indiana. His work was influenced by his admiration for pre-Columbian and African-Oceanic sculpture and artifacts. Like the “primitive” artist, his sculptures have minimal detail, clean lines, and positive, optimistic rounded forms. When possible, they also include movement, action, and humor.

In Faces of Indiana for the Millennium, Schiefer used his style to convey the many types of people found in and around Indiana.
