Chester Beach "Riders of the Elements" Reduction



Sculptor Chester Beach (1881–1956) created a sculpture "Riders of the Elements" for the 1939 World's Fair in New York. A reduction of this sculpture was taken from a 7 feet tall plaster model of the same work and reduced to 3.5 feet tall.

The following images show some of the process.
