History: The Saint Paul native and internationally acclaimed artist Paul Manship created this elegant Art Deco style statue. The city originally installed the sculpture in Cochran Park but because of vandalism replicated it and relocated it to Como Park. The move did not solve the vandalism problem; therefore, in 1996, the city renovated the sculpture and returned it to Cochran Park, placing the replica in Como Park.
Born in 1888, in Saint Paul, Manship began studying art at the Saint Paul School of Art, from whence he moved to New York City. From there he went on to study in Europe. He produced more than seven hundred pieces before he died in 1966.
