Lewis, Clark, and Seaman the Dog

There's a bronze Lewis and Clark and Seaman the Dog statue near the base of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. I highly recommend stopping here.

[Jason Linemann, 07/25/2020]

The sculpture, by Harry Weber, was dedicated on the 200th anniversary of Lewis and Clark's return in 1806. When the Mississippi River floods, the half-submerged humans look like they're wading ashore.
