Victor Issa is a figurative sculptors known for his narrative imagery. In Grandpa, the Storyteller you can see how lifelike the child and the grandfather look. This piece evokes the familiar feeling of being with, and learning from, your grandparents or elders. Appropriately enough this work is placed in the Storyteller’s area in the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden.
