Don’t you love the fabulous and recently gifted Paul Manship “Tortoise” ❤
The bronze “Tortoise” was modeled in 1916 and cast in 1999. The gift was made possible through the generous donations of Arthur N. Ryan, Henrietta Gates, Heaton Robertson, and attendees of the 2015 Women’s Luncheon. Read more about Paul Manship’s work at the Cape Ann Museum here.

Perhaps Manship’s most well known work, it’s interesting to see how the plaza surrounding “Prometheus” has changed through the decades.
