The Thinker has returned home.
    "After many nervous hours of careful maneuvering onto a pedestal Monday, ``The Thinker,'' one of the world's most recognizable sculptures, was home again at Stanford University's Cantor arts center after a three-year journey overseas."

The Thinker was the first work by Rodin to be erected in a public place. More than 20 copies from the original mold exist around the world. The Musee Rodin in Paris has one. Another copy is located at Rodin's tomb in Meudon. In the US, The Thinker can also be seen at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
