The statue by A. Thomas Schomber was commissioned in collaboration with Sylvester Stallone in 1980 for the movie Rocky III (1982) and also appeared in Rocky V (1990). After the third movie, Stallone donated the statue to the city of Philadelphia. The statue depicts Rocky, the lovable underdog who aspired to a victorious goal over insurmountable odds and ultimately became an international symbol of inspiration and a cultural icon. The statue now sits on a grassy knoll at the bottom of the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps. Miniature replicas are available.
