The Winged Ox

Detail of the statue in front of the former St. Luke's Hospital on Shaker Blvd. in Cleveland. The winged ox is the symbol of Saint Luke, and sculptor Walter Sinz saw fit to include it in his 1929 grouping, though it rests behind the three main figures.
Sinz, a graduate of the Cleveland School of Art (now the Cleveland Institute of Art), is better known as the sculptor of the Thompson Trophy, awarded for many years at the National Air Races.
