During his lifetime, Ulysses Davis carved more than 300 works, producing a varied, but unified body of wood sculpture that reflects his deep faith, humor and dignity. The work can be divided into several major categories: religious images, patriotism, works influenced by African forms, abstract decorative objects and portraits of African and American leaders. Included in this exhibition is a group of forty carved busts of all the U.S. presidents through George H.W. Bush.
