Statue in Lincoln Memorial (dedicated 1922)
Daniel Chester French (1850-1931)
white Georgia marble
19 feet 9 inches (6 m) tall and 19 feet (6 m) wide (not including the pedestal)
I haven't found an official title for the sculpture but I assume it is just Abraham Lincoln, self-explanatory isn't it?
In honor of Lincoln's birthday, take another look (or a first look) at this monumental, imposing classical sculpture. Daniel Chester French was a significant sculptor of the 19th century with the Lincoln Memorial sculpture his greatest accomplishment.
IN THIS TEMPLE
AS IN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE
FOR WHOM HE SAVED THE UNION
THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN
IS ENSHRINED FOREVER
