  • With its rhythmic flow of simple forms, this sculpture parallels the majesty and grace of Lachaise’s work devoted to the human figure.
  • Lachaise first created Seagull for the United States Coast Guard Memorial at Arlington Cemetery in Virginia. This smaller version was made as a hood ornament for a Marmon automobile, manufactured in Indianapolis.
