Leaping Gazelle (1936), central figure in the

Levi L. Barbour Memorial Fountain on Belle Isle,

was Marshall Fredericks’s first national competition

award.  It put him on the map as a serious

monumental public sculptor.  It also stands at his

gravesite.

I like Siberian Ram (1963) because Marshall

Fredericks was an excellent stone carver and

the quality of this piece is amazing.  The ram

was also a popular theme in early 1900s art.

I have a small bronze Siberian Ram myself.

Fountain of Eternal Life (1964) resonates with me

because of the message of hope it conveys.

Black Elk: Homage to the Great Spirit (1998)

“Grown men can learn from very little children

for the hearts of little children are pure. Therefore,

the Great Spirit may show to them many things

which older people miss.” – Black Elk

Two Bears (1965) is the first Marshall Fredericks

sculpture I encountered as a child and I

fondly remember climbing on it each time

my family visited our local public library.
