The White House says the artist who made the sculpture for the pope is Geoffrey Smith from Stuart Florida.

Also presented to Your Holiness is a one-of-kind, hand-made bronze sculpture. Crafted by an American artist, "Rising Above" represents hope for a peaceful tomorrow, as it evokes two universal values: unity and resilience. The flowering lotus exemplifies the possibility for growth and triumph in the face of trying times.
