Wisdom Supporting Liberty



While I would certainly not agree with his politics, Aime-Jules Dalou created this inspiring bronze entitled "Wisdom Supporting Liberty" displaying an armored Athena holding up an unarmed and exhausted Liberty.

There were 10 casts made, one of which grabbed me at the Clark Art Institute this weekend.

I agree. The sculpture itself was interesting, but when I read the title I had to go back and study it more closely.

Gripping--after reading the title it gave me chills.
