  • Description

  • The two-figure sculpture depicts Charles A. Lindbergh at two stages of his life – as a young boy playfully pretending to fly (perhaps above the banks of the Mississippi River in his home town of Little Falls, Minnesota), and as the accomplished 25-year old solo aviator who amazed the world in 1927 by becoming the first person to pilot an airplane non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean from New York to Paris alone. Replicas of this 9.8 foot, 1,135-lb bronze work stand at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul, as well as in Paris, France.
