The president is Houston artist's muse

For 82-year-old Houston sculptor David Adickes, Barack Obama is more than just a president—he’s a muse. Adickes recently complete an 18-foot-tall, 3.5-ton bust of Obama to go along with the other 43 American presidents, for a display at the Presidential Park in Deadwood, S.D. for a July 4th celebration. The bust will reportedly be featured on the July 4 issue of Time magazine.
