—Alexander Milne Calder (1846-1923) —More than 250 sculptures adorn City Hall - all designed by Alexander Milne Calder. Calder made clay models that his studio of artisans translated into bronze or stone. The crowning glory, Willian Penn, stands more than 36 feet tall and weighs over 53,000 pounds. When installed in 1804 atop the tower, this sculpture of Philadelphia's founder was the largest and heaviest statue ever cast in bronze.
