Amelia Earhart: Ocean's to Fly
"Oceans to Fly" cast bronze lifesize standing portrait of Amelia Earhart by Jane DeDecker bronze ed/21 quotation on the wing-tip base... "Everyone has ocean's to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries?” -Amelia Earhart
The monument was commissioned for a school in Alameda, California where Amelia took off for her last flight. This sculpture was created with the permission of the Earhart family.
I try to retain in the sculpture the beginning strokes and gestures, because for me they contain the truth of the spirit. The finished piece hopefully reveals my thoughtful study of the subject and the energy of the creative process.” -Jane DeDecker
