A sculptor creates a bronze statuary group on the theme: “Man’s confidence in his fellow-man”. We see the preliminary sketch, the wire skeleton on which the rough figures are built up as the sculptor observes living models, the measurements of the clay group being taken, and the casting of the life-size bronze replica.
