Faith, the central figure on the National Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth, Massachusetts, is 36 feet tall. Statuary cutter Joseph Archie stands on Faith's outstretched arm. He was the primary cutter and Postasio Neri supervised the carving of base statues Morality, Education, Law and Liberty. Although the statue appears solid, it was carved in sections and most likely transported to Plymouth in one of the two large ships owned by the Hallowell Granite Works.

The photo was taken in the cutting yard on Franklin Street and the one-time steeple of the Baptist church can be seen in the background. [http://www.mainememory.net/artifact/29250/]
