This piece was commissioned by the trustees of Memorial Hall Library in Andover, MA to serve as a focal point for community readings on the environment and for children to climb outside the library. Carved from Bethel (VT) white granite, the mother polar bear is surrounded by her three cubs. The cubs are situated to provide steps onto the mother’s back. The title, “Vigilance,” refers both to the mother’s watchfulness and alertness to danger for her cubs, as well as for the need for human vigilance with regard to the environmental problems we have created.
Location: Andover Library, Andover, MA. This piece is accesible to the public.
Directions: This piece is in front of the Andover Library.
