Einstein in the Snow

Einstein in the Snow, photographed in Washington, DC in February 2010 by Shannon Finney

One of my favorite monuments in a town full of great monuments is
tucked away in a grove of holly and elm trees on the grounds of the
National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. The twelve foot
tall statue of Albert Einstein, by sculptor Robert Berks, has a rough-hewn
quality that makes it look as it were cut from treebark. To sit there
with Albert is a magical experience.
