Inscription.  
The work of this prolific Winston-Salem sculptor is exhibited in international galleries. During her career, Earline Health King completed 345 private commissions and public art works including statues of Bowman Gray, Dr. Simon Green Atkins and a man on a horse inspired by R.J. Reynolds. King also designed special memorials. One honors the lives of three Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center Air Care crew members who died in a helicopter crash. Another, which she described as her favorite, is one of Commodore Funderburk, a blind gentleman who worked 41 years at Winston-Salem's IFB Solutions (formerly Industries for the Blind). It sits outside the company's front entrance.

On her 90th birthday, North Carolina Governor Mike Easley presented King with The Order of the Long Leaf Pine, one of the highest honors a governor can bestow on a North Carolina citizen. The Winston-Salem Arts Council also named its Sculpture and Pottery Studio in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts after King.
