Sculptor captures Power’s ‘joy of winning’ in Borg-Warner Trophy likeness

As the sculptor tasked with creating a likeness of Power’s face in miniature sterling silver, William Behrends was fascinated by those eyes.
Behrends has finished putting Power’s facial likeness on the Borg-Warner Trophy, which will be unveiled Dec. 5 in a ceremony at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum.
In September, Power visited Behrends’ studio in North Carolina to sit for a full-size bust modeled in clay.
Working on likenesses as small as the Borg-Warner faces – about 1 inch by 3 inches each – is demanding but enjoyable, Behrends said.
