Sculpture: "Life" by Karl Bitter                      Five details below:

"Over the mantle of the marble fireplace in the main hall is a six-foot marble relief called  Life by K. Bitter, which won first prize at the St. Louis exposition. Weighing two tons, it is placed on a foundation extending to the cellar. It was bought at the recent sale of Goodyear pieces, but the purchaser never took it away because experts found they would have had to tear down the house to get it out" - Nat Gorham
