Vulcan



Vulcan, God of Fire and Iron

The colossal satatue of Vulcan, God of Fire and Iron, was in the Palace of Mines and Metallurgy, where it represented the great iron and fuel industries of Alabama. The figure was cast in iron from a model by G. Morelli, a New York sculptor. It was brought to St. Louis in sections, on seven freight cars, and mounted on a pedestal of coal and coke. Vulcan stood fifty feet high and weighed 100,000 pounds. It was the largest iron casting ever made, and next to "Liberty Enlightening the World," was the largest statue ever constructed. At the close of the Exposition the figure was removed to Birmingham and set up in Capital Park to remain as a permanent monument.

ILLIGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM

Thus ye may find in thy mental and spiritual self, ye can make thyself just as happy or just as miserable as ye like. How miserable do ye want to be?......For you GROW to heaven, you don't GO to heaven. It is within thine own conscience that ye grow there.

Edgar Cayce
