This bronze work depicts the selfmade man in his struggle to chisel himself from common stone. Blindfolded, The Entrepreneur must trust his instincts. His hand is battered from misplaced strokes of the hammer, constant reminders of his own mistakes. Not knowing if the next strike of the chisel will cut himself off at the knee or allow him to move further toward his goal, he continues unimpeded by his mistakes.
