"The Spirit of Life" is a sculpture located in Congress Park, downtown Saratoga Springs. This work, by American sculptor Daniel Chester French, began as a commission for a memorial to the famous Wall Street financier Spencer Trask who spent his summers in Saratoga. The figure represents Hygieia, the giver of health, and pays tribute to the area's history as a health and wellness center based on the many natural mineral water springs.
