Stone Lion
by Jan Rosetta
Keeping a watchful eye on Beckwith Park is the Stone Lion by Colorado sculptor Jan Rosetta. "When I form his image in clay, the animal is mine. I can finally possess him without moving him from his natural place. I respond to him as I start a realistic rendition of the pose he has suggested to me, and then he responds to me as I add the stylization that expresses my feelings for him. Now we have achieved a rapport denied us in the real world." - Rosetta The work of art was a gift to the community in 2002 by the Bill Moran family in memory of its matriarch, Violette Tillman Moran.
