The Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts, within the Leland Stanford Junior University, hosts a multitude of Augustine Rodin’s sculptures, including one of “The Thinkers” that he had created about thirty of.

Another of Rodin’s sculptures was that of the French explorer Samuel de Champlain.

Most of Rodin’s statues are part of a collection called “Gates of Hell” which show people is various stages of despair in the fictional version of Dante’s Inferno.

Auguste Rodin had spent 37 years creating the various sculptures for “The Gates of Hell” while in Paris.
