Also known as the "Waiting Soldier", he sits on a bench near the Town Hall in Cartagena, Spain.
He is a rather dejected looking man, apparently a soldier reporting for duty in the garrison.
The life-size bronze statue in uniform, head in hand, suggests "A Moment of Reflection".
Cartagena (pronounced car-ta-hay-na) is a Mediterranean city and major Spanish Naval Station, and boasts many beautiful statues and the natives like this type of art.
