This lovely work of art replaced the second of the two side relief sculptures stolen in the 1980s from the Horace Wells Memorial at Hartford’s Cedar Hill Cemetery. This south-facing replacement bronze (left) was cast by sculptor Anatoly Mikhailov. Beneath the waking woman (right) he cast the phrase: “I Awaken to Glory.” Opening around her with the dawning day are flowering morning glories. Both of Mikhailov’s sculptures—this one and the north-facing “I Sleep to Awaken”—memorialize nitrous oxide pioneer Horace Wells. (Copyright © the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc.)
