Piece description from the artist

The Indiana State Soldiers and Sailors Monument is a Neoclassical monument built as the centerpiece to the landmark Monument Circle in the heart of the Capitol District in Downtown Indianapolis. Designed by German architect Bruno Schmitz and completed in 1902, it is not only a tribute to those who fought during the American Civil War, but also features elements depicting the American Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War and the Spanish-American War.

"War and Peace", featured here & created by Austrian sculptor Rudolph Schwarz, is one of the many sculptures that adorn the monument.

About Ashland Thomas

Chicago, IL

Ashland grew up in Southeast Virginia surrounded by lush rural landscapes, great protected swamp lands, national & state parks, the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore, the breathtaking Skyline Drive & Blue Ridge Mountains, and the inlets & oceans of Virginia & North Carolina.

It was this constant variation in natural beauty that first drew his eye to the camera; that, and the constant joy of capturing life's candid moments on film. Although no particular subject is banned from the lens of Ashland's camera, it is landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife, and nature that truly captures his heart.

"There's always more to see, more to learn, more to be wowed about-I just hope you enjoy what I see in the world."

A constant staple on the likes of Instagram, Flickr, and Facebook, Ashland currently resides in Chicago, Illinois, and looks forward to many more years of development, collaboration, creativity, world travel, and art.
