“Winged Figure of the Republic,” Hoover Dam, Arizona-Nevada Border
Shot of monumental sculpture by Oskar Hansen.
From the photographer:
The 30 feet (9.1 m) high bronze figures, dubbed “Winged Figures of the Republic”, were each formed in a continuous pour. To put such large bronzes into position without marring the highly polished bronze surface, they were placed on ice and guided into position as the ice melted.
