Mother Nature replied:

What a lovely surprise to find this featured in you wonderful group! Thank you, Elena:>)

golly what a beautiful frieze... is that what you call it? this is beautiful and I'd love to see it in person.

Mother Nature replied:

I'm unschooled in the proper terms but this is almost full relief in some areas and much more shallow in others. It's BIG, and beautiful - very solid looking and feeling. Descriptions call it a variety of things, panel, relief, bas relief, etc. I wish they'd do something to light it and really show it off.

Artist's Description

An historic building, Philadelphia's 30th Street Station is still a bustling hub for trains, and it sports some famous statuary. This terra-cotta plaque �Spirit of Transportation� by Karl Bitter (1867�1915) is located on the west wall of the waiting area of 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was moved from it's original home in Broad Street Station in 1933. The railroad station scene in the movie, WITNESS, was filmed here. I couldn't capture the power of this relief sculpture with my simple, little camera, so I combined a picture of the whole with three closer ups of portions of the relief.

About Mother Nature

Mother Nature

I invite you to visit my blog - Nature's Wonders - which is all about the natural world in my neighborhood. I always wanted to try photography, and my retirement offered an opportunity to do just that. The natural world is my first love. Here you will find pictures of things both large (landscapes, for instance) and small (macro) that catch my eye. I hope the images serve as a window into the natural world many of you don't have the chance to see. In a sense, I'm trying to create a guided nature trail, sharing what information I have about the subject. I'm always grateful for new and better information and welcome all input. Learning is food for the mind and soul. Nothing is ever...
