Long Description:
"The creation of the monument began while sculptor Francis Jansen, a Dutch-born immigrant, was visiting a stone quarry in Carrera, Italy. She found herself strongly drawn to a large elongated block of marble. While gazing at the stone, it virtually opened to reveal the image of a Native American man lying with his face on the ground. As Francis began the sculpting process of releasing the vision, a being she lovingly refers to as Eagle Man, emerged from the marble.

This arduous and euphoric birthing process took exactly nine months. During this time Francis became increasingly aware of the greater significance and potential of her work. From out of her enormous sense of gratitude for this now-embodied vision, grew the inspiration for the non-profit project called Transformation Through Forgiveness. She realized that the monument was, and is, a symbol and anchor for a far reaching global movement of forgiveness and reconciliation." Text Source: (visit link)
