The photo of the statue of Abraham Lincoln was taken by Susie Klein, legal editor with The Colorado Lawyer. The statue, which is set in the central hall of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, is 19 feet high and weighs 175 tons. It was carved in four years by the Piccirilli brothers, under the supervision of the sculptor, Daniel Chester French. The Lincoln Memorial was opened to the public in 1922.
