Discovered by a master stonemason at the age of 16 in a small village in the hills above the Dalmation coast in what was then the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Mestrovic trained at the Art Academy in Vienna, and went on to exhibit his work in Paris, Belgrade, Rome and across the US. His work in bronze and stone, adopting the Art Noveau style, was feted by the likes of Auguste Rodin. Probably his most famous works are the gargantuan Gregory of Nin, and The Victor, but he also produced a great many other monumental sculptures with themes drawn from epic moments in Slavic History.
