Wise Man by Bill Allen
Whimsical painter and sculptor Bill Allen is a Michigan artist from the Petoskey area. His Wise Man stands on the shores of Lake Charlevoix in Boyne City. We are sure you have seen (or even sat on!) another of this artist's well known sculptures--it is the galapagos tortoise just outside the reptile house at our Detroit Zoo. Countless children have climbed him, hung on his neck and even embraced him.
