Having spent most of my working life in heavy construction I have the highest respect for anyone who lost their life in pursuit of the impossible. For me the Hoover Dam is without question one of the most moving places I’ve been to, especially when you read the statistics about those who perished during its construction. I’ve been lucky enough to have visited this fantastic structure a couple of times, but I’m still left in awe of the sheer scale of this human achievement. This memorial is a wonderful Art Deco bronze that been beautifully sculpted by Oskar J. W. Hansen.
Constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression of America and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin Roosevelt. Its construction is a testament to human effort and endurance and more importantly the needless loss of life.
Note – The arrangement used for this homage image is coped from one my Flicker contact Andrew Howe who`s work I follow closely – His image Night & Day a fantastic piece of work
As always thank you for looking and I hope you have enjoyed my work
