A late use of the bas-relief technique. This one is signed in the clay by Parzini & Rochette, principals in a well-known New York firm of the day
which specialized in bas-relief and sculpted pieces. They executed the bronze doors of the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington,
and were commissioned for work on the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, the U. S. Senate building, the U. S. Capital building,
the 1939 World's Fair and various government, church and university buildings.
