he " Morning " Spirit is represented by a man
standing in conscious strength upon an elevation, his
body slightly turned, as moving from night into day.
With every muscle in readiness, he clears a massive
lock of hair from his forehead, and looks into the face
of the dawn. Below a man and a woman spring up
from the ground, and hold towards each other two little
children who kiss in the air, symbolising the happy
beginning of life. On the opposite side a couple, hand
in hand, move freely forward, with strength of purpose and upturned faces,
ready to meet the life that lies before them. In making this group the
endeavour was to bring a human rhythm of motion into the conception of
Morning; a rhythm of forms rising and springing up into the day. The
children, with their innocent kisses, held aloft by the strong arms of father
and mother, form the pledge of undying love between them, and symbo-
lise the evolution and divinity of humanity rising like flowers into the light
of day. * •lf**-
