In honor of the next installment in the ROCKY legacy, CREED, and just in time for the holidays, The ROCKY Statue is proud to offer a FREE POSTER with all ROCKY sculpture purchase in the US and Canada.
We're all excited for the latest chapter in the ROCKY legacy, CREED! From the CREED FaceBook page, here's a summary of what we can look forward to:
Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.
Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.
With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?
Your legacy is more than a name. Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone star in #Creed – in theaters November 25, 2015.
A. Thomas Schomberg's sculpture, THE GIFT, has been chosen to be part of the American Indian Veterans Monument. The twice life-sized statue will be installed at Riverside National Cemetery in Riverside, CA. An installation date is to be announced shortly.
The purpose of the American Indian Veterans Monument is to honor the lives of American Indian and Alaska Native veterans who have served in the military throughout the history of the United States. Their stories must be told and their legacy preserved for the benefit of future generations.

ROCKY Travels the World!
In 2011 Michael and Larissa Milne sold everything and left Philadelphia with a 12” resin ROCKY sculpture for a year-long journey around the world. After embracing a much simpler lifestyle, they're still on the road!
