“The gilded sculpture of a young man rising from the fountain … was installed in 2008. The 18-foot mold was made from a plaster cast of artist Donald Harcourt De Lue’s post-World War II work, The Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves. The original is at the Normandy American Cemetery in France.” (from L.A. Magazine at lamag. com).
Thank you — to Teng and Jane Lambino (CA Cpt. Voltaire Lambino and Jane E. Lambino) for touring me at the 1950s-inspired building complex showcase:)
