Statue or Sculpture?

Continuing with our series of chess playing statues -- see Calgary's "Winner" for the previous statue -- this one is located at Clark Alumni House, Coe College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. On second thought, it's more likely a sculpture than a statue.

The plaque behind the statue/sculpture reads,

Edmund W. Whiting
8/2/18 - 9/28/75
Bronze cast in 1994
Gift of the family

According to other sources, Edmund Whiting served as chair of the art department at Coe College.
