Picture This #234 ~ Sculptures Or Statues

This huge sculpture in Newark, New Jersey is called "Wars of America". The sculptor is Gutzon Borglum who did Mount Rushmore and also my beloved Stone Mountain in Georgia. The stone (granite) that this sculpture is carved from is actually from Stone Mountain.

  1. Hi Debby !! That's a very impressive statue. It looks enormous, it must have been a huge piece of granite it was carved from. I like how you've photographed it from several angles to get as much detail as possible.

  6. Hi Debby. I love how you composed all of these shots from different angles. We can see the work of art in its entirety. With a subject as large as this it had to become the set of three.
