  • Personal Connections
    We felt that this was not just a statue, it is a piece that conveys a lot of emotion
    The man appeared sad, scared or depressed, he obtained very life-like features
    The sculpture looked as if it was made in several steps, like the wire/clay sculptures we made
    The first visit we saw the big features, however the second visit we noticed the detail in the face, hair and nails
    The work of art seemed to tell a story, like the sculptures we created out of clay. Each one had their own story
  • Contextual Information
    • Eternal Vigilance was created by artist John Silk Deckard.
    • Originated at the Erie Art Center on West Sixth Street in 1978. When the Art Center moved to State Street and became the Erie Art Museum in 1983, the sculpture was installed in front of the Art Museum
    • Eternal Vigilance represents a moment of tortured humanity captured in 500 pounds of bronze.
    • Deckard described the piece as representing “a heroic, self-clutching figure.”
    • It was created through the ancient process known as the lost wax bronze casting technique.
    • It took nearly one year to complete.
    • Deckard first made a small figure, which he used as a guide for constructing the larger statue out of quarter inch wax sheets.
    • Deckard corrected any flaws by flame polishing the work of art, then the 50 pound wax piece was taken to Cleveland for the bronze casting process.
    - Information received from Patrick, a museum employee and pamphlets at the Erie Art Museum
