This sculpture of Lincoln was created by Mark Lundeen. It was donated in 2012; see photo of plaque below for a complete donor list.
Jason Napier created this sculpture, titled Precious Cargo, of a large cat carrying one of her kittens. It was donated in 2001 in memory of Corinne Miles by Jackie and Jerry Miles.
I had tried photographing this sculpture on at least three other occasions but, whether shooting at night or during the day, I kept getting an unacceptable amount of glare from the surface of the sculpture, which is polished and shiny. The color of the stone is really quite beautiful; I didn’t want to settle for a shot that had a lot of glare in it. I finally employed some lighting techniques which made it possible to get this shot with minimal glare.
Embrace was created by sculptor David Hiles. It was donated by The Fountain Hills Civic Association, The Sunridge Foundation, and many others – see photo of plaque below for complete list. (Note: The plaque is in poor condition; I had to do a significant amount of touch-up to make it look presentable.)
