Hand of a Legend debuts at World Golf Hall of Fame
November 9, 2011

A fine art bronze life-cast of the hand of Jack Nicklaus teeing up a golf ball, the first in a limited edition series by artist Jack Kimmich entitled Hand of a Legend , is now on display at the World Golf Hall of Fame.

The museum-quality art was produced from a casting of Nicklaus' hand, utilizing the "lost wax" process that artists have used for more than 2,000 years to handcraft quality bronze art. The casting, mounted on a base of Midnight Black granite, was first displayed in early June at the Memorial presented by Nationwide Insurance, which Nicklaus hosts in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

Only 1,500 pieces of this first edition are being cast. Kimmich, of JHK and Company in Kennesaw, Ga., will be producing similar life castings of golf greats in the future. The series is licensed by the PGA TOUR and the World Golf Hall of Fame.

"We're pleased to include this beautiful, unique piece of art in the World Golf Hall of Fame as we continue our mission of celebrating the legacies of the game's greatest players," said Jack Peter, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the World Golf Hall of Fame. 

A portion of the sale of each Jack Nicklaus casting will be donated to the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation and to the World Golf Hall of Fame. Visit www.JHKandCompany.com to learn more about purchasing Hand of a Legend . Future castings will be announced as they become available.
