The National Sculptors' Guild is honored to have been selected by the City of Paramount, California to update their Armed Forces Plaza to include the new branches.
A life-sized kneeling soldier pays tribute at the foot of a Fallen Soldier cross. This bronze sculpture will be placed in the center of a circular plaza, facing in the direction of the Veteran's Memorial sculpture "Unfolding" by Mark Leichliter. This also positions the soldier kneeling in the direction of the American flag, and creates a natural flow from one plaza to the next.
The bronze sculpture will be set in the center of a 15-ft black granite circle that is composed from six equal triangles that meet at a 2.5-ft diameter circle in the middle. Seals of each branch are etched on outer diameter of the granite plaza. The existing Elks medallion will be placed at the center, between the figure and battlefield cross. Our design is shown below.
JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs. click here for a list of our over 500 large-scale placements.
