Message
According to Marshall Fredericks: “The statue represents the spirit of man. In his left hand he holds a symbol of God and in the right hand, a family group.  It expresses the concept that God, through the spirit of man, is manifested in the family, the noblest relationship.”

Damage
Acid rain/age caused green patina coating to dull and chip.
Gilded orb lost its luster.
Longest ray from orb lost a bracket causing damage to the Spirit’s shoulder.
Limited waxing and weather elements caused staining and chipping of the marble base.
