Taken directly from the pages of Tales of The Gladiator, this amazing sculpture by renowned sculptor Chris Barela, depicts Grey in the cockpit of his Southern California-based vessel Gladiator during his 1926 battle with his 582-pound world record broadbill swordfish.Chris Barela Sculpting The Gladiator

In what is one of Barela's finest pieces to date, the swordfish is bursting over two feet above the bronzed ocean surface. Grey's determination is beautifully captured in a detail befitting the father of modern big-game fishing.

"Mr. Barela's attention to detail brilliantly captures the emotion of my father's epic battle with Xiphius Gladius, the Gladiator of the Sea."
-- Dr. Loren Grey
