Hot Springs sculptures stolen

Posted: Updated:

Police are investigating sculptures stolen in Hot Springs.

Artist Jeanfo, 82, said 10 outdoor sculptures were stolen from his sculpture garden.

The French artist has called Hot Springs his home since 1989 and his sculptures can be found around the city.

The pieces are made of steel and take several months to make.

Jeanfo said although the thief may have been trying to sell them for scrap metal, they are 

worth more as art.

"My inspiration comes from the driftwood I find near the lake," Jeanfo explained. "I try to express the best I can, the feeling I receive from the piece of wood."

If you have any information, please call local police.
