These statues are found in Hannibal Missouri. They honor American author, Mark Twain’s famous characters in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a popular 1876 novel about a young boy growing up in the antebellum South on the Mississippi River in the fictional town of St. Petersburg, Missouri.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often shortened to Huck Finn) published in 1884. It is commonly regarded as one of the Great American Novels, and is one of the first major American novels written in the vernacular, (the common language of that time period and characterized by local color regionalism).
The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.

I love being able to capture a moment in time with my camera. I take photos based on what I feel is beautiful, unique or silly. I have a great variety of photographs, from the details of a flower to landscapes, clouds and sky, mountains and more.

    The lighting is right, as well the contrast of the background, brings forward the focused element of the statue, You’ve not only captured the artist signature, but my interest for doing so ! paul

    Paul is right on all accounts. A perfect setting to emphasize the shading of the bronze. Will have to share with my grandson next time he’s over as he is reading this book (he’s 7 yrs. old), I know he’ll enjoy it. Jules
