Casimir Pulaski Monument 2/3

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 February 2020 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Located in Monterey Square, the Pulaski monument is made from Italian marble, with smaller elements of granite. It is 55 feet tall. The monument has a bronze bas relief of mounted Pulaski, and is topped with a statue of Liberty, with the stars and stripes banner. The monument was designed by Robert Launitz. The bas relief was designed by Henryk Dmochowski, and shows the moment of Pulaski's death, as shown here. Additional elements present on the monument include the coat of arms of Poland and the coat of arms of Georgia.

The framing was slightly tilted, since at the top right, it has more margin than the top left.
The brightness control is perfect.
