the sculpture entitled Flame in Fite's studio

Harvey Fite begins construction on his humanism-themed, outdoor sculpture gallery of bluestone statues. The first in the series is entitled Flame, and it’s carved in his at-home studio. It’s intended, he says, “to discuss civilizations. The bottom is Greek fluting, the pelvis is Oriental, the torso Renaissance, and the head and raised arms are totally abstract, going off into flame shapes so that the whole was meant to show a composite of cultures as they historically merge and burn themselves out.”

Fite’s next statue in the series is a kneeling African American entitled Tomorrow.
