The “Philly Special” is now immortalized in bronze outside the Eagles stadium. The Statue commemorates the winning play that crowned the Philadelphia Eagles as the 2018 Super Bowl LII champions.
It took sculptor Raymond Gibby about four months, using a traditional lost-wax process to construct the 9-foot-tall statue commissioned by Bud Light as part of their "Philly Philly" slogan campaign.
Check out this exciting report about the unveiling of a sculpture honoring Professor Barnum at Dixie State University. Sculpted by the wildly talent Annette Everett.
"The sculpture, which was completed, delivered and installed just days earlier, was created by local artist Annette Everett. Everett said she based it on an image of Barnum holding a snake, which she found in a copy of Dixie State’s 1964 yearbook. The statue also depicts a small alligator resting at the bespectacled, suit-wearing Barnum’s feet."

Check out this article about the dedication of David Alan Clark's statues of TCU's Coach Gary Patterson, Coach Dutch Meyer, and Heisman winner Davey O'Brien:
