Continuing with my sculptures series, though far less dramatic than my last one, this is one of the faces of the people in 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.
V2 shows the same woman, heavily pregnant, and V3 shows the whole monument, though only from one side of the circle. Some figures have faces, some do not.
Unfortunately, the square is very busy and has lots of restaurants, but I decided to leave the backgrounds as they were.
I'll be showing some more closeup detail next time.
