This steel sculpture was created by artist John Sauve for the “Grow Your Own Sculpture” program sponsored by the South Haven Center for the Arts. The silhouette presents a single outline of a man cut into a spiral of steel mounted on a steel beam. The entire sculpture is painted orange and mounted on a cement base that is painted black.

About “Faust” and John Sauve:
Detroit area sculptor John Sauve created “Faust”—named for the mythical German character who sold his soul to the devil in return for “worldly knowledge and pleasure.” "Faust” is reminiscent of Sauve’s Man in the City sculpture project—forty sculptures installed on rooftops throughout Detroit and Windsor, Canada. Suave has exhibited at the Chicago Sculpture International Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition, the Krasl Biennial Sculpture Exhibition in St Joseph, and created sixteen sculptures for Benton Harbor and St. Joseph in the likeness of Muhammad Ali as part of the I Am the Greatest project, designed to help youth in Southwest Michigan learn about community, art, and creative expression.
