Scope & Content James Muir was born in Indianapolis, Indiana 1945. He attended the United States Military Academy at West Point , served six years in both the U.S. Army and Air Force. His professional art career as a sculptor began in Sedona, Arizona 1980. Allegorical Art is a term Muir uses to describe his art as being filled with symbolic meaning. Bridging the centuries from his historical military subjects to today's social, political and spiritual commentary, his sculptures speak eloquently of Duty, Honor, Courage, and Justice, but above all, of Truth and the ultimate triumph of the Human Spirit. Muir's early interest in history and the military was reinforced by his experiences as a West Point cadet and to which he also attributes the cementing of his personal "Code of Honor."
