“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” – Isaac Newton

This statue is beloved for a reason. The poignancy of the quote and the buoyant whimsy of the figures in the piece beautifully depict the value of fellowship and teamwork. This sculpture is really representative of the intergenerational community in The Woodlands—it reminds us all to remember those who’ve lifted us to where we are now, and to lift up those still working out their place in the world. Even the greatest among us acknowledge their debt to those who came before.

Robert Cook is internationally recognized for his ability to “capture motion in fluid bronze.” He has gigantic sculptures all over the globe, including Park Avenue in NYC, Canberra in Australia, and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. He currently resides in his home just north of Rome. If you’re interested, you can see pictures, videos, and find out much more at his website.
