While statues of sowers are somewhat common, most, if not all, are workers. Alex Palkovich created a religious sower to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of Florence Baptist Temple. Pastor Bill Monroe proposed placing the sower on the globe. The tall structure acts as a sundial as the sower travels in a circular pattern around the pillar. This statue makes a statement among the world of religious sculptures.
