|"Portrait of Olympic Founder Pierre du Courbertin"
One hundred years later, at the Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, a statue honoring Coubertin was erected in Centennial Olympic Park. Atop the monument are seven doves carrying the Olympic Rings and a laurel wreath (photo).
Portrait of Olympic Founder Pierre du Courbertin was created by sculptor Raymond Kaskey. Among Kaskey's creations are the bronze-work for the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. and Portlandia in Portland situated outside the Michael Graves' Portland Building.
