"Freedom's Fire": The bald eagle was chosen to be the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength, and majestic looks. The eagle represents freedom. Living as he does on the tops of lofty mountains, amid the solitary grandeur of Nature, he has unlimited freedom, whether with strong pinions he sweeps into the valleys below, or upward into the boundless spaces beyond.
The Statue of Liberty stands proudly on Liberty Island in New York harbor, a symbol of freedom throughout the world. Her flaming torch, flowing robes, and spiked crown have long since been an inspiration for American pride, and the majestic power and grace of her pose have given the United States a symbolic mascot that will forever display the power, wealth, and freedom of this great nation.
The "Freedom's Fire" bronze sculpture was inspired by the trials that our great nation face in the name of freedom. A freedom that is not free, but that is paid for by all that fight for it. Sculpted to portray the unity and the power that our great nation has in freedom. Showing that we have the ability to rise out of the fiery trials that we endure fighting for this freedom. Reagan once said "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." This fine art sculpture reminds us of the great resiliency that this great nation has!
