The Preacher

Posted by

Granite sculpture created by Waldemar Raemisch in 1952. Located in the Ellen Phillips Samuel Memorial Sculpture Garden. I thought he was a rather odd looking fellow.

A fine shot of this interesting sculpture. I wonder who the sculptor used for a model?

@Slackwater - Don: He sort of reminds me of a skinny version of Friar Tuck in the movie Robin Hood. Maybe its the hair.
