The Fountain of Eternal Life
is a statue and fountain located on Veteran's Memorial Plaza in downtown Cleveland. Designed by Cleveland Institute of Art graduate, Marshall Fredericks, and dedicated in 1964, the sculpture serves as a memorial to those who served in WWII and the Korean War. According to Fredericks, the 35-foot bronze sculpture symbolizes man's rise above the flames of war and violence, "reaching and ascending to a new understanding of life".
