"The Poet" is the third artist in the Hands of the Artists collection. The artist is teetering back on a high four legged stool, head cocked to the side with half used pencils stuck randomly in her hair. The scroll of paper she is writing on (actually cast in bronze) is wrapped around her and the chair then folds into a book sitting on the floor under the stool. The book is a book with an original poem written by the bronze poet about herself and you the viewer. The poet is David Sweet, a successful Tacoma , Washington writer and poet. The uniqueness of this piece is continued in that the writing carved into the scroll will be the opening stanza of each buyer's favorite poem.
