Nehemiah Statue Takes Prominent Place


The Biblical story of Nehemiah was a running theme for the Ravens last year, and Head Coach John Harbaugh only has to look in the corner of his office to be reminded of it. On one of his bookshelves sits a one-of-a-kind sculpture of the Persian high official clutching a sword and a shovel. Given as a gift from his assistant coaches and created by local Baltimore artist Breon Gilleran, the Nehemiah figure represents part of what the Ravens went through as a team in 2009 and part of what the Ravens aspire to moving forward.
