Statuette of Joseph Nicollet

Miniature version  of a Joseph Nicollet memorial sculpture cast by Paul Theodore Granlund in 1985.   The bronze statuette consists of a cylindrical base supporting a bronze likeness of geographer and explorer Joseph Nicollet (1786-1843) peering through a surveying instrument that frames his figure.  The full-size sculpture sits on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, Minnesota.
