"Spirit of the American Navy" Five years after his success with “The Spirit of the American Doughboy,” artist E.M. Viquesney created this sculpture, “The Spirit of the American Navy” with its first U.S. installation in November, 1927. “Sailorboy” was meant to be a companion to the 135-plus “Doughboy” sculptures. When sales were slow after eight stamped sheet copper editions had been created, production stopped. This copy was discovered in an antique store in Pennwater, Michigan. Its owners had purchased him from a Chicago junkyard in the early 1900’s. No record exists of this sculpture even being permanently erected in any location. Now our “Sailorboy” stands tall, waving to his WWI companion across Burlington Square Park in joint remembrance of service in the “War to End All Wars.”
