National Constitution Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. James Madison in the Signers Hall, one of the life size bronze statues of all of the signers of the US Constitution. While the Constitutional Convention meetings were held behind closed doors, and no minutes of them were ever published, it is known that Mr. Madison kept notes that provide the few glimpses into what took place. It is also known that while he was the shortest person in attendance, his influence of the writing of the Constitution was large. (The statues were created in EIS Studios in Brooklyn, NY. They researched historical documents in the designs. The background color is that of the wall behind the statue.)

See that Mr. Madison (sixth Governor of Kentucky) was in an pensive mood, Thad. No wonder because contributing to the writing of the Constitution was very important. Think to see the responsibility on his face.
Perfectly shaped statue again, and perfectly captured as well.

This photo is also very sharp and clear and looks good against that background Thad.

Long before the white man and long before the wheel, when the dark green forests were too silent to be real. Lightfoot 1967
