Sculptor and Founder
International Cheemah Project
Jack London Square, Oakland

Dear Friends:

On behalf of California's 9th Congressional District, I am pleased to welcome you to the special unveiling ceremony for the Cheemah, Mother of the Spirit-Fire scultpure and to recognize its creator, Ms. Osprey Orielle Lake.

This eighteen foot bronze monument and its counterparts in Germany and Spain represent the launching of a new international cultural bridge that will promote peace and honor global diversity.

I am confident that this statue will be popular and well-visited for years to come. I look forward to its contribution to the vitality of our community and waterfront
