Atlas Shrugged: A Distillation of Dagny Taggart's Determination

Being in the design world for over forty-five years I have been fortunate to meet many talented people and see a lot of great art. But the gift Scot D. Ryersson gave to me is the most imaginative, ingenious piece I have ever seen. Having been asked by him who my favorite fictional female characters were, my first choice was Dagny Taggart, the independent heroine from Ayn Rand's novel, Atlas Shrugged. Scot then set about and amazingly distilled Dagny's complete essence and personality into three-dimensions.

I'm sure Ayn Rand would be jealous and want this creative, elegant arcanifact Scot created for herself if she were alive today. I am honored and will always cherish this heartfelt token.
