Mahogany Memorial Bas Relief

This finely detailed bas relief was commissioned as by a former student of Groton Academy as a memorial to a beloved music teacher, and placed over the entrance to the music building. The patron insisted on certain details, such as a faithful portrait of the teacher and an accurate depiction of the chapel interior, where the students gathered every morning for worship and choir. Note the fire engine, lower left. The music teacher had been a volunteer fireman for the town.
