Detail to the monument at the entrance of Highland park. These gates have been described as copies of the "Gates of Munich" in Germany and consist of granite shafts formed by four Doric columns and surmounted by heroic bronze groups gesturing welcome. A bronze female figure at the base of each column holds a torch supplied with incandescent lights. Flanking each column is an ornamental balustrade on the end of which is a bronze eagle with wings spread. The gates were completed in 1896 and stand 56 feet high. These were some of the first works done by Giuseppe Moretti in Pittsburgh.
