In 1950 Lipchitz was commissioned to contribute a work to an open-air collection of sculpture commemorating American history at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. This is a study for the five-metre-wide Spirit of Enterprise that resulted. It shows a striding pioneer, bearing a caduceus (the ancient symbol of commerce), being led by an eagle. The final monument, his first major American commission, was not inaugurated until 1960.
