Courage and Vision

I would dearly love to have these sculpted figures as bookends, but I would need a massive crane to get them in my library. Ah well.

These two are entitled 'Courage' and 'Vision'. Without courage there is no vision, without vision there is no courage.

Walker Hancock — Courage — 1939

Walker Hancock — Vision — 1939

With these, there are two more fabulous sculptures of similar stature located at the Soldiers' Memorial in St. Louis, known as 'Sacrifice' and 'Loyalty'.

Are these two from the 1939 World's Fair?
