Freedom of the Human Spirit
by Rajender Krishan Bookmark and Share
 

I was told that this statue "Freedom of the Human Spirit" originally stood in the 1964 Fair's version of the Court of States. In 1996 it was renovated and resurfaced and moved to its present position which is between the main entrance to the Arthur Ashe US Tennis Center and the Unisphere. 

Freedom of the Human Spirit was sculpted by Marshall Fredericks. The male and female figures are unabashedly naked. According to Fredericks own words, (gathered from the web while doing research)

I realized that great multitudes of people, of all ages, and from all walks of life would see this sculpture…I tried to design the work so that it was as free of the earth, as free in space as possible…the thought that we can free ourselves from earth, from the material forces which try to restrain and hamper us, is a happy, encouraging and inspiring one, and I sincerely hope that my work will convey this message.”

Another beautiful sculpture is the Rocket Shooter strategically placed on one of the radial avenues leading to the Unisphere.
