So many fun details were included on this sculpture. I didn't notice the jet contrail until I was preparing this post, but I love how the boy's plane seems to be following the same path.

The lunch box the farmer is carrying is like the one my brother used.

  3. I love the realism of this type of sculpture. We visited the Orphan Train Museum in Concordia,KS last Saturday and there was a similar style sculpture of children there. Thanks for sharing.

  5. The little boy is dreaming of flying high some day.

    I love bronze scuptures. We had some really INTERESTING ones in Jacksonville and of course, Philadelphia is bursting to the seams with statues. My favorite one downtown is Ben Franklin welcoming George Washington to the Masons.

  6. I really like the detail in the sculture. My dad and FIL both had lunchboxes like that one. THe detail is amazing. I wouldn't have noticed the jet trail until you told us.

  7. Beautiful sculpture. My Dad had a lunch box like that, it held a thermos on one side and a sandwitch and fruit on the other, I was always in charge of washing it out...I recall it smelled like bananas as usually there was a banana peel in there.:)

  8. Nice. Did this sculpture come from the foundry you visited?
