Description: Image of Willie Tarver's concrete sculpture entitled Cap Lee #3. Tarver, an artist from Wadley, Georgia, made concrete gravemarkers in the mid-1960s before moving to large-scale concrete and metal figurative sculptures. Tarver's sense of humor is visible in works like Cap Lee #3, which melds the artist's features with those of Robert E. Lee.
