Spirit of Liberty
DescriptionThis piece is an abstract representation of the spirit of liberty. The lone sentry looks hard into the dark of night as the revolutionary war is imminent. He stands stock still and straight with his cocked hat on, keeping vigil in his uniform of civilian homespun during a long cold winter night. His musket is at rest, and he holds a single lantern in his hand. His face is a profile; we cannot see his grim expression, but we understand that he is standing guard over the flame, symbolizing liberty.
