Sylvester Stallone had a very clear vision of what he wanted the statue of ROCKY to portray. ROCKY, the iconic hero, is poised with his arms over his head to represent the stage in his career when he is the victor.¬†Except for several temporary placements at the Philadelphia Museum of Art during the filming of the “ROCKY” movies, the statue was installed at the Spectrum Sports Complex, which according to the movie, was the location of the boxing events.
