The Albert Pike Statue is located in Judiciary Square in Washington D.C., and is administered by the National Park Service. The life sized bronze sculpture was erected in 1901 by the Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States. Sculpted by Gaetano Trentaove this 11 foot tall statue features Albert Pike in civilian dress, holding his literary masterwork, Morals and Dogma. The base of the sculpture is inscribed with: Orator, Jurist, Pilosopher, Phillanthropist, Soldier, Scholar, Poet, Author, and the latin phrase Vixit Laborum Ejus Stites Sunt Fructus which means He has lived. The fruits of his labors live after him. A befitting tribute to such a good and great man.
