Dover Air Force Base to unveil sculpture

    A new sculpture is being unveiled at Dover Air Force Base.

    The bronze sculpture being unveiled Monday depicts a guardian angel holding and protecting a wounded soldier. The $40,000 sculpture called “The Angel and the Dying Unknown” will sit near a meditation garden on the base.

    The sculpture was donated by the New York-based Newington-Cropsey Foundation. It was sculpted by Greg Wyatt, the director of the foundation’s Academy of Art.
