TRAVEL THEME: SCULPTURE
AMERICA’S FOUNDING FATHERS
A few days from now the United States will celebrate the birth of our country on the 4th of July, 2013.
Last year helping to recognize this historical occasion, a sand sculpture made out of 160 tons of sand depicting the Founding Fathers gathered in Independence Hall in Philadelphia to sign the Declaration of Independence was featured at the Three Rivers Regatta. The scene was modeled after paintings by John Trumbull and Howard Chandler Christy.
The sculpture — featuring Ben Franklin, George Washington, John Adams and many other Founding Fathers witnessing Hancock sign the Declaration was displayed at Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh.
Ms. Jill Harris and three other sculptors are responsible for the sculpture. Ms. Harris is the President and founder of Sandsational Sand Sculpting.
These photos were posted last year, around this time, and I thought you may like to see them again for Alisa’s Travel Theme: Sculpture.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
