This sculpture is by Egon Weiner, who was a Chicago sculptor and longtime professor from 1945-1971 at the Art Institute of Chicago. According to Jyoti Srivastava’s essential Public Art in Chicago blog, each bronze grouping of Brotherhood depicts four “kneeling figures whose extended arms are intertwined to represent unity of people of Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. Each grouping bears a different set of inscriptions: Brotherhood, Liberty, Tolerance and Equality, Peace and Unity, Justice, Friendship and Knowledge.
