Firstly, I would like to thank Leon (Tibetan) for favouring my Rights of Man 1 with his User Award.
Still continuing with my sculptures series, I'm showing some more of the "Rights Of Man" sculpture in Santo Domingo Square, Murcia, Spain. Also known as the Peace Monument, it's a monument to human rights, by one of the most important Spanish sculptors of his generation, Mariano Gonzalez Beltran, who has a wide international presence and imbues his work with “idealistic or humanist figuration”, quite unmistakeable in the contemporary art scene.
The statue consists of many bronze figures making a circle of life-sized standing linked men, women and children, and symbolizes a society living in harmony with the rights of man.
This is one of the faces of the children. (I think Brian was hoping for her doll to be included, so I apologise for the exclusion, but also now regret having excluded it ). This one was in shadow, so I used flash.
V2 is the face of another child.
V3 is what I think is a globe held by one of the statues.
V4 is the same as last time, the whole sculpture from one side, to give context.
