Description

Fredericks received this commission as a result of an honorable mention in the Section of Fine Arts World's Fair Competition. Completed under the Section of Fine Arts Public Buildings Administration Federal Works Agency, the finished terracotta relief originally hung over the Postmaster's door in Sandwich, Illinois.

A mare and colt dominate the center portion of the relief. Balancing on either side are a ewe with two lambs and a sow with one of her pudgy shoats. Each of the animals expresses a vitality that suggests the active life and abounding health of the locality.
