Description:
View of a road leading to Stone Mountain in Stone Mountain, Georgia.
Stone Mountain is composed of granite and has a bas-relief sculpture of Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis carved into its face. The carving was conceived by Helen Plane in 1909, and carved by several artists whose work was subsequently removed from the mountain. In 1964, artist Walker Hancock took up the carving which was eventually completed by Roy Faulkner in 1970. In 1958, the state of Georgia purchased the property surrounding Stone Mountain and converted it into a public park.
