High Fives

-By Tim Bruckner

Every one a sculpture. How many do you recognize?

  1. The one in the middle at the top is from 'The Greek Slave' by Hiram Powers. (Carving chains in the round in marble must be quite a feat.) The one immediately below that appears to be from the statue of St Longinus in the Vatican. There's one near the bottom from the Lincoln Memorial, Washington, There's also some from the Laocoon sculpture group. And there's probably a few Michelangelos, Berninis, Canovas and Rhodins in there.
