Sculpture Description

The team was officially named the Minnesota Vikings on September 27, 1960. The name is partly meant to reflect Minnesota’s place as a center of Scandinavian American culture. The Vikings of old were explorers, warriors and pirates of medieval Scandinavia. They were feared warriors. Our sculpture shows the fierceness of their society, and the strength of the Vikings organization and loyal fans.

The Sculptor Company has created a hand sculpted limited edition bronze sculpture for each of the thirty-two teams that make up the National Football League. We currently have eight completed pieces of art. Each solid bronze sits upon a marble base and depicts the mascot or history of the team it represents.
Each sculpture will be approximately 20” x 20” x 9”. It weighs 28 – 32 pounds. Each customer will have the opportunity to create a personalized nameplate to go on the front of their art piece. This will give the owner the ability to leave a lasting legacy for generations to come showing their loyalty and support for their “Team” and the NFL.
