The Ascent of Heroism was just dedicated on Memorial Day

My latest bronze monument was just unveiled on Memorial Day in Altoona, Pennsylvania. It was a very emotional and inspiring event. The bronze is composed of 7 veterans from 7 different American fought wars swept up in a swirl of wings and feathers. Five of the figures are portraits of veterans at Grandview--which is one of the oldest cemeteries in the United States and dates back to before the American Revolutionary War. The bronze stands 11-1/2 ft high upon its 5 ft high solid granite base in the middle of a Veterans Circle.

'The Ascent of Heroism'
A swirl of wings and feathers
gently guides
our fallen heroes home.


Much creativity to you,
Paula

Hopefully the images will attach this time.

Nope can't seem to get them small enough to attach, but there are images of the piece on my website and we'll be posting a short video of the event on my website and on youtube.com soon
