Only an artist that is truly comfortable with his talents would attempt to encapsulate one of the greatest operas in the world in a single monument. Based on the epic opera “The Ring” by Richard Wagner this masterpiece walks the viewer through the opera translating it into the fine art of sculpture chronologically from the opening scenes on the front to the closing scenes on the back.
“(Schmalz’s) Ring sculpture is extraordinarily rich in ideas, and it evokes the elements of Wagner’s story in imaginative and creative ways. Its narrative quality is reminiscent of the biblical sculptures to be found in many of Europe’s oldest cathedrals, and like many of those medieval works it fuses the characters and events in one continuous whole. Above all the sculpture impresses in its sheer size and scope.”M. Owen Lee, author of “Wagner’s Ring: Turning The Sky Around”
