"I have realized, and have experienced, that knowledge is power. The more knowledge we obtain, the more choices we are free to make and the more empowered we become. So often we limit ourselves because of shortened or narrow perspectives. Books open to us larger and more complete perspectives and ultimately, bigger and more brilliant pictures. Youth at its best: studying, pondering, learning, growing, dreaming – trying to understand today while coming up with the solutions for tomorrow. These readers elevate to new heights with their continual acquisition of knowledge. The children represent diligent study. The stacks of books represent the higher levels of learning and understanding that come to us through knowledge. I offer to you, ‘New Heights of Knowledge: The Thinker’. Read!" Gary Lee Price

"New Heights of Knowledge - The Thinker" features a seated human boy deeply focused on reading a book. The individual is perched atop a tall stack of books, with their chin resting on one hand to support the contemplative stance. The figure's other hand is holding open the pages of the book being read. The entire sculpture, including the figure and the books, has a uniform bronze finish. The books beneath the figure are sculpted with visible covers and pages, adding to the impression of a lofty literary column. The artwork conveys themes of knowledge, learning, and the timeless value of literature.
