Inscription.  These three sculptures were created by Bolivian-born sculpture Pablo Eduardo, whose work is rooted in the figurative tradition of Renaissance and Baroque sculpture and the work of Michelangelo, Leonardo,and Bernini specifically.

The sculptures depict the evolution of Naval Special Warfare, featuring a Vietnam-era Frogman, a contemporary SEAL warrior, and a modern canine counterpart. Inspired by a project commissioned by the Tip of the Spear Foundation in 2011, the figures are made of bronze and cast from the original molds.

The initial sculptures are part of a private collection assigned to a SEAL Team in Virginia Beach, VA. With special permission, and under the urging of Chief Operating Officer Rick Kaiser, the Navy SEAL Museum was granted access to the molds for this new installation allowing the public to enjoy them as a dedicated part of the Memorial Garden.

The statue on the right represents a modern-day Navy SEAL. Forged in fire by their Vietnam-era forefathers, these men embody the history, heritage,and fighting spirit of the original WWII Frogmen.
