Big Statues LLC has a very well known and experienced track record when it comes to Veteran memorials. Big Statues has created war memorial statues across the nation for multiple events and facilities, from world-renowned museums to homegrown memorial parks. This time around, Big Statues has been commissioned to recreate two important figures from both WWI and WWII for Veterans Memorial Park in the city of Cedar Park, Texas, one of the fastest growing cities in the nation.
Veterans Memorial Park is one of Cedar Park’s largest and most visited parks in the City. The Park’s center is home to a large military monument honoring all veterans- past, present and future. A pathway leads from the parking lot up to the large monument located at the top of the hill, where a towering, seven-foot tall bronze soldier, clothed in Army dress blues and holding an M-16 rifle standing guard on the monument base, can be found. The city wants to pay tribute to major modern conflicts and honor those that served in the war by adding more statues along the pathway that leads up to the monument. This year, Big Statues has been working on two of those sculptures; A life-size bronze depicting a WWI “doughboy” and a life- size bronze depicting a WWII naval commander.
Doughboy was an informal term for a member of the United States Army or Marine Corps during World War I, and the naval commanders were large assets in World War II. Matt Glenn, President of Big Statues LLC, never gets tired of Veteran memorial projects. He loves what they symbolize and the meaning behind each life-size, sculpted bronze piece. When creating these statues, Matt said, " I always consider it a privilege to work on military monuments, given the fact that I never had the chance to serve in the military. However, I have a great appreciation for what they do, and I try to honor them by doing quality artwork that they will be remembered by."
