Joe Louis Fist
The Joe Louis Fist is a prominent sculpture in downtown Detroit across from Hart Plaza on Jefferson Avenue. It was dedicated on October 16th, 23 years ago. The "Brown Bomber" was our beloved heavyweight boxer world champion from the Motor City. The artist of the fist is Robert Graham. It is 24 feet long and weighs 8,000 pounds. It is de rigueur to have your photo taken with it, like T-Wo, here from Germany.
