Designed by Gloucester sculptor Morgan Faulds Pike, the statue captures the all too familiar pose of waiting-with-strength known to wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters of fishermen and mariners whose family members chose to go out to sea. The memorial is a reminder that while the men are out at sea, the women are active in the community engaged in the work of promoting and preserving the Gloucester and New England fishing industry and helping active and retired fishermen and their families live better lives. When I look at this picture, the mother’s face and her children holding her hand and her shirt say it all.
