ortrait of Abraham Lincoln delivering the Gettysburg Address. His gaze is lifted towards the skies, and his hand is open, gesturing as he recites his historic remarks at Gettysburg in 1863. His left hand holds the speech itself, but it cast down to the side. Lincoln is taken in the heat of the moment.His right foot is stepped forward and his coat is beginning to bloom behind him on the left, as he strides towards victory and peace.

This sculpture was crafted by Jewish Lithuanian artist Max Kalish. Kalish's body of work is largely comprised of one-third life size statues of American laborers. His massive Lincoln stands out as a unique piece among his works.
