Arizona sculptor John Henry Waddell is known around the world for his life-size, realistic bronze statues of human figures in poignant poses. Earlier this month, eight of Waddell’s statues were stolen from his property in Cornville, south of Sedona. Tragically, thieves might have taken the artwork for the metal. Bronze is 90 percent copper which is valued for its record-high prices. We’ll speak with Waddell about the incident that likely reduced his artistic creations to raw material.
