Vulcan in St. Louis

Giuseppe Moretti's Vulcan statue stands amid other displays in the Palace of Mines and Metallurgy at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. It earned silver medals for its creator, Giuseppe Moretti, and iron and steel manufacturers James R. McWane, and J. A. MacKnight, who commissioned the monumental sculpture.
