It was created by renowned sculptor Giovanni Schoeman.

It depicts Rocky Balboa “The Italian Stallion” and Apollo Creed fighting it out in the ring with incredible detail, power and grace.

Stallone’s and Weather’s signature appear on the bottom.

The artist’s signature appears on the left side; the United Artists Corporation logo appears on the right side.

It is plaster cast with bronze enamel paint.
