On the corner of Temple and Middle streets in Portland, Maine is a cobblestone plaza featuring a sculpture created by Victor Kahill called The Maine Lobsterman. Kahill originally created the sculpture from plaster for the 1939 World's Fair where it was exhibited in the Hall of States. A bronze version was produced in 1974 and installed at this spot in Portland in 1977. There are two other bronze copies of the sculpture, one in Washington DC and the other in Harpswell, Maine.

The plaque on the front of the sculpture's base reads: "The Maine Lobsterman by Victor Kahill For the World's Fair A.D. 1939 Placed in this Public Square by the Portland City Council A.D. 1977

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
