schuykill chained.

This statue is entitled “Schuykill Chained,” which rests on top of the Fairmount Waterworks along the Schuykill River in Philadelphia. His face seems a little dazed and it appears to me that this guy is enjoying those chains just a bit too much, but the sculpture truly is beautiful to look at. I wonder how many people overlook him in favor of the breath-taking view of the river itself?

The name Schuykill is of Dutch origin and means “hidden, or skulking creek.”
