Norwegian-born, naturalized American sculptor Oskar J.W. Hansen designed many of the sculptures on and around the Hoover dam. His works also include the monument of dedication plaza and a plaque to memorialize the workers.
The original 30 foot (9.1 m) high bronze figures, dubbed "Winged Figures of the Republic," were each formed in a continuous pour. To put such large bronzes into place without marring the highly polished surface, they were placed on ice and guided into position as the ice melted.
