Indianapolis, Indiana: Seated Waving Lincoln Statue

Sitting Lincoln looks like a smaller, darker version of Abe in the Lincoln Memorial except for the waving hand -- which officially is a "gesture of peace," not a wave.

Seated Waving Lincoln Statue

A large statue of Abe Lincoln seated is located near the corner of East New York and North Pennsylvania Streets in University Park, which is just south of the Indiana War Memorial. Parking is available between the Park and the War Memorial. There are several other notable statues within the park.

Sculpted in 1935 by Henry Hering, it resembles the Abe in the Lincoln Memorial except for the waving hand -- which officially is a "gesture of peace," but to us more of a "Whoah, slow down there fellas."
