The Lehigh Valley Workers Memorial sculpture evokes the image of the workers who poured I-beams from molten steel, crafted the heavy-duty trucks or dug limestone from quarries. Sculpted by artist Zenos Frudakis.
"The figure is bent as if in burden, pushing on the circle," stated sculptor Zenos Frudakis. "It has a sense of being an unending, eternal memorial to workers."
