Turned To Stone

A little more from the Robert Street Bridge. Most of the piers on the bridge, near the top, there is a decorative emblem of some sort or another. They are not all faces like this one shows, I guess I haven't really gotten close enough to take a good photo of the detail before. I do know some of the piers have emblems, as I barely captured one in a photo I took back in 2006 which can be seen here. What do all these symbols represent, my very brief search found nothing.

Yes, I, too, would like to know about these faces.

Given the attire of the individual and the name of the bridge, I would guess it was Louis Robert, for whom the street is named.
