Commissioned by Wentworth Military Academy and College, Lexington, Missouri in 2001 this bronze sculpture represents an enlargement of the U.S. Army Infantry cross rifle insignia. It is 400 pounds of silicon bronze cast in three pieces and welded. A patina was added and the "brass" look was achieved by polishing out the necessary areas. The sculpture is just within a 32 square foot area. General Tillotson, for whom this sculpture was dedicated to, approved the work in my studio before the casting. The sculpture is a compliment to the newly constructed barracks called "Tillotson Barracks". An architectural firm had designed the apex atop the new building to include a freize and then a friend, Steve Carroll, FAA artist , architect and photographer, made the connection for me to do this work. I thank them as well as Eligious foundry in Kansas City, Missouri for their assistance. The sculpture was paid for by donations from patrons of Wentworth.
See this sculpture on location in Lexington, Missouri at Tillotson Barracks on the campus of Wentworth Military Academy & College.
