Two black and white mounted photographs of Missouri sculptor Joseph Horchert with works of art. One image depicts Horchert with a rabbit sculpture and the other depicts him with 16 foot model of a William Penn sculpture in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Horchert is pictured on scaffolding (right) with another unidentified man (left). The model appears to be a small scale version of the William Penn bronze cast by Alexander Milne Calder which sits atop Philadelphia City Hall.
