This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Tertenia, Italy, Albino Manca became a sculptor of commemorative works, a medalist, craftsperson, and professor of art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He lived during most of his career in New York City, although he spent much time in Italy where he was also a student at the Academy of Fine Arts and exhibited there as well as at the Roman Exchange and the Italian Salon. Other exhibition venues were the National Sculpture Society, National Academy, Pennsylvania Academy, and Rockefeller Center.

Among his works are numerous medallions including ones for the Vatican in Rome. The "East Coast Memorial" in Battery Park in New York City is his most famous large-scale work and depicts a bronze eagle, 18 and 1/2 feet high, atop eight granite slabs. It is a memorial to President John F. Kennedy. Manca also did WPA (Works Progress Administration) sculpture, and one of these pieces is "Wild Duck and Deer", 1942, in Lyons, Georgia.
