1921 Masonic Plaster Statue

$ 2495.00

An extraordinary stoic plaster figure from the old Scottish Rite Temple near Wright Park in Tacoma. Lovingly (and very carefully) removed from the G street cathedral - some 40+ feet in the air - by two Second Use veterans. The temple, built between 1921-22 and designed with the Temple of Solomon in mind, was recently demolished after an interior fire left it in significant disrepair. The unnamed figure you see here was placed adjacent to a rams head column, situated in such a way as to solemnly cast its gaze toward the open cathedral, and was clearly crafted with care and meaningful intention. While we are saddened by the falling of the building itself, local historical pieces such as this can serve as a potent memento of our city's past, the stories & lives our community is imbued with, and we're proud and honored to have been a part of the preservation of this piece.
