Caelum Aratro Fiderunt, created by Pennsylvania artist David Cerulli, is a stainless steel and bronze statue situated along Air Products' outdoor walking path. The statue is a gift that was presented to Air Products in 1992 by former Chairman and CEO Dexter Baker upon his retirement. It has been accurately described by a local newspaper as “a pair of 14-foot-high forms made of curling, jetting stainless steel, split and attached by a
16-foot cleaver of bronze, polished and sanded to simulate the mercurial nature of air currents and clouds.”
The sculpture's Latin title, Caelum Aratro Fiderunt, translates as “we cleave the sky”; loosely translated, it means “we do the impossible,” like separating and liquefying air and making it into useful by-products.
