Long Description:
The sculpture depicts (L to R) Olav Bjaaland, Oscar Wisting, Roald Amundsen, Sverre Hassel, Helmer Hanssen. Each of the men is shown in their Antarctic coats and clothing standing as if at attention. Each stands on his own granite block separated from each other by about 5 feet. The work depicts the men lifesized.
Unfortunately there is no information at the site (and none found online) concerning the date or artist.

Wikipedia (visit link) informs us:

"Roald Engelbregt Gravning Amundsen...(16 July 1872 – c. 18 June 1928) was a Norwegian explorer of polar regions. He led the Antarctic expedition (1910-12) to discover the South Pole in December 1911 and he was the first expedition leader to (undisputedly) reach the North Pole in 1926. He is also known as the first to traverse the Northwest Passage (1903-06). He disappeared in June 1928 while taking part in a rescue mission. Amundsen, Douglas Mawson, Robert Falcon Scott, and Ernest Shackleton were key expedition leaders during the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration."
