Christian Stavrakis, Our new client and foundry friend is getting a lot of attention lately. You may have heard of George Romero, a family friend of Stavrakis, is considered by many to be one of the most cherished contributors to the horror film genre. He is also known as a humanitarian and social commentator ahead of his time.

The bust is on display in the Monroeville Mall, Pittsburgh, PA, where the critically acclaimed "Dawn of the Dead" was filmed and served as the iconic setting for much of the 1978 film.

"Zombies", have become a staple in today's pop culture. The credit for conceiving the metaphor of "the dead consuming the living" goes to Romero.
