“Here I am looking back at myself!” - Bruno Sammartino
Bruno Sammartino visited the studio while we were working on his statue and it was an amazing experience to meet the man and take part in honoring his career. His statue was unveiled on April 6, 2014 by Arnold Schwarzenegger when Bruno was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
"Everything from Sammartino’s barrel chest to his tree trunk legs were meticulously recreated by ATTA, INC., but this isn’t some museum exhibit that will stay behind glass. The statue was sculpted with Bruno’s hand eternally raised in victory — a perfect position for a man who held the WWE Championship for more than 11 years — making it interactive as fans can play the role of referee and hold the wrist of the iconic Superstar for a photo opportunity."
