Laura Baring-Gould with the owners, staff and workers at Asia Fine Arts Foundry who played important role in the bronze casting and fabrication of the Dorchester Clapp Pear Sculpture

While Asia Fine Arts primarily produces Buddhist and cultural monuments, many artists also create works of fine art at the foundry. The Thai staff felt this sculpture was especially important as it was going to America to help people understand and value their own history. “How can you understand who you are if you do not understand your history?” one worker asked.
