Here's the statue
Here's a photo of the $60,000 statue in Hickory. This is the caption that ran with the photo when it was published in the O-R: Frank Hnat pulls away a sheet covering a statue next to the Mt. Pleasant Township Volunteer Fire Department on Route 50 in Hickory. The sculpture of a farmer and his calf will be officially unveiled during a 10 a.m. ceremony Saturday. Hnat, of Mt. Pleasant, designed the statue and artist Alan Cottrill, formerly of Washington County, sculpted it. "It's a dedication to the farmers of the area ... to honor those people and do something a little more spectacular," Hnat said Thursday. Crews last week installed the $60,000 statue, which was financed through private donations and is part of the Hickory revitalization project, Hnat said.
