The statue is situated just below Lane’s home and studio on Duncan’s Point. Duca, who lived in Annisquam, worked on the project in the mid-1990s, finishing it in 1996. Unfortunately, he died before the statue was cast and dedicated, and community members raised funding, had the clay model cast in bronze, and installed. As well as his art career, Duca was also technically innovative, developing Polymer Tempera, the binder that made acrylic paint possible, in 1944. He also worked nationally with youth to help prevent drug use, started national organizations to do so, and earned a Massachusetts Lifetime Achievement Award.
