These statues are the first exhibits you see when you come to the museum.
With the height of about 12.3 feet, these sure are eye catching.
Despite that, not many people really know how great these are.
These sculptures were created by Antoine Bourdelle, a French sculptor. Mr. Bourdelle was an assistant of Rodan, who is famous for his artwork called The Thinker. We purchased these sculptures from Musee Bourdelle in Paris.
When you face the museum, you’ll see female statues to your right and male statues to your left.

He is in such good shape. I think I saw him in Gladiator, the movie.
She looks serious holding a sword, and brave like Jeanne d'Arc!

These sculptures have a certain value. You can touch them and take photos with them. Not so many museums make it possible for visitors to touch and photograph the valuable sculptures!
Please pay close attention to these sculptures when you come to the museum!
