Monuments
   

In 2012, the people of the Town of Hanna celebrated 100 years as a community.   To commemorate this milestone in our history, a former resident, Mr. Bryan Pfahl and his associate Mr. Kevan Leycraft were commissioned to create a unique shadow sculpture for the Town.

To represent agriculture and the railroad, elements that were important to the history of Hanna, the artists chose cultivator shovels and railroad spikes as the sculpting medium.

The sculpture comes to life at night when the reflection on the wall behind becomes a portrait of the pioneer spirit.  At the heart of the picture is a young, strong, possibly naïve and foolhardy pioneer couple with their child.   They are standing in a field of wheat and looking to the future where the steam train is coming toward them and three grain elevators stand on the horizon symbolizing the agriculture of our community.

During the daylight hours the sculpture can be enjoyed for its structural elements, but at night, the reflection of the sculpture becomes a portrait reflecting our past and our future.
