Astronomers Monument
📍 From Griffith Observatory, United States
The Astronomers Monument, located in the Griffith Observatory of Los Angeles, California, is a six-foot, twelve-ton bronze sculpture of celestial instruments. Created by sculptor Henry Merwin Shrady, it was commissioned by Griffith J. Griffith as part of his celebrated observatory. A nod to astronomy, Griffith’s most passionate pursuit, the monument is composed of several instruments, including a large telescope, a compass, a sextant, a telescope, and a clock. A globe of the stars is supported by two figures, symbolizing learning and exploration. The detailed design and the intricate patina of the sculpture captivates visitors as they explore the space. Visitors will also enjoy the panoramic views of Los Angeles from the Observatory’s grounds. This is a must-see site for anyone interested in astronomy or admiring grand sculptures.
