In 1911, Charles Robinson Sykes sculpted the form of a woman leaning forward with her arms stretched behind and above her.
Billowing cloth is pressed against her by the wind. As she holds it in her fingertips, the cloth resembles wings.
She’s one of the most famous icons in the world. Six feet tall and signed by Sykes, she’s currently en route to her new home at Wizard Academy.
One thing about Wizzo, he can find treasure. Can you believe this was even able to be purchased?
This fearless sculpture will eternally fly into the wind that whistles up the cliff on which sits Chapel Dulcinea, Wizard Academy’s famous free wedding chapel. We have the perfect spot picked out. Now all we have to do is pay for it.
Here’s what you get in return for your contribution of $10,000.
1. Two nights in Engelbrecht House and Spence Manor for yourself and up to 17 people of your choosing.
2. A 1-day class taught in the tower for yourself and your 17 chosen.
3. You determine what you’d like to learn; you choose the problem to solve; you control the curriculum.
4. The Wizard will be available to teach, of course, as will most of the Academy’s instructors. Just tell us what you desire and we’ll try to make it happen.
5. All food and drink will be provided by the Academy.
6. Vice-Chancellor Whittington will take your group on his celebrated late-night Tour of Scotland.
7. Your name will appear on the dedication plaque, along with the names of at least 4 other $10,000 donors who believed, as you do, that Wizard Academy was the right place for this girl to fly.
Is this something you can do? Let Vice-Chancellor Daniel Whittington hear from you by May 26 and all will be as it should be.
