Three Golden Divers


My first few hours on the ground in London with my eyes towards the clouds. Completely missed the more "known" statue / water feature at the base of 34 Haymarket -- "Horses of Helios"

«Unconditional Surrender»-statue vandalised shortly after sailor's decease


Looking back on the moment later on, Freidman described a kiss that wasn't consensual. "Suddenly, I was grabbed by a sailor," she told Veterans History Project in 2005. "It wasn't that much of a kiss. It was more of a jubilant act that he didn't have to go back."

Mendonsa's recollection is similar. "So we get into Times Square and the war ends and I see the nurse," he told CNN in 2015. "I had a few drinks, and it was just plain instinct, I guess. I just grabbed her."

I actually wonder why they erected a statue celebrating sexual misbehaviour against women, or why such a photo documenting this became so famous. This is partially disturbing.

"The approximate damage is estimated to be more than $1,000 due to the large area that the graffiti covers, and the resources needed to repair it," police said in a statement.

"The Statue Of #Unity", #World's #Tallest #Statue Opens To The Public In #India

Right on schedule, the world's tallest statue has officially opened in India. Standing almost 600ft (182m) tall, the new Statue of Unity depicts Indian freedom fighter Vallabhbhai Patel, and was dedicated by India's Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi at a ceremony on October 31.
“The Statue Of Unity”, World’s Tallest Statue Opens To The Public In India
 


#India prepares to inaugurate the world's tallest #statue
Looming 182 meters (597 feet) above the #Narmada #River in the western Indian state of #Gujarat, the #statue is set to be unveiled on October 31.
 
Die Idee, dass man vermeintlich heroische Ereignisse der Geschichte auch aus einer anderen Perspektive betrachten kann - nämlich aus der des Unterlegenen - ist nicht neu. Gerade an Christoph Kolumbus, dem Entdecker Amerikas, scheiden sich seit vielen Jahren die Geister, besonders in der spanischsprachigen Welt zu beiden Seiten des Atlantiks und in den USA. Auslöser der neuesten Aufregung ist die Entscheidung des Stadtrats von Los Angeles, eine Statue des Seefahrers aus einem Park zu entfernen. Über 100 Schaulustige und Nachfahren von Ureinwohnern bejubelten die Abräumaktion und dokumentieren sie mit ihren Smartphones. Kolumbus sei zu sehr mit Sklaverei und Brutalität verbunden, um ihn mit einem Denkmal zu ehren, so der Stadtrat.

Die Stadt Los Angeles ließ nach jahrelangen Protesten von Ureinwohnern eine Statue des Seefahrers Christoph Kolumbus entfernen. Die Folge: Spaniens Völkermord in Lateinamerika erhitzt wieder die Gemüter.

Hätte man in Los Angeles die Statue des Kolumbus allein wegen seiner Hässlichkeit entfernt, hätte dies niemanden interessiert. Aber nun erhitzen sich wieder die Gemüter über den Völkermord der Spanier in Lateinamerika.

India has inaugurated the world’s tallest statue, a £314m effigy of the independence hero Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel that is nearly twice the height of New York’s Statue of Liberty. The 182-metre Statue of Unity in Gujarat is part of Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist party’s efforts to rebrand what it calls ‘forgotten’ leaders

#Germany: Golden Statue of Turkish President Erdogan erected

"Artists" erected a 4 meter (13 feet) tall #golden #statue in the likeness of #Iraq's former dictator #SaddamHussein in the #German city of #Wiesbaden





#BERLIN — A golden #effigy of #Turkish President #RecepTayyipErdogan evoking the famous statue of #Saddam #Hussein has been erected in a central German city as part of an #art #festival whose motto is "bad news."

The larger-than-life statue in the central German city of #Wiesbaden depicts #Erdogan with a raised right arm, a pose #reminiscent of the #iconic statue of former #Iraqi #dictator that was famously torn down by American military forces during their #invasion of #Iraq in 2003.

The local #WiesbadenerKurier reported the #statue was put up in the city's #downtown area Monday. City #authorities had #authorized the statue as part of the ongoing Wiesbaden #Biennale #art #festival, but didn't know #Erdogan would be the person depicted, the newspaper reported.

Satanic Temple statue unveiled at Arkansas State Capitol...







Members of the Satanic Temple held a "Rally for the First Amendment” yesterday at the Arkansas State Capitol, where they unveiled an 8.5-foot bronze statue of Baphomet with two adoring children at his side to the Arkansas State Capitol. The Satanic Temple is suing the Federal Government for the right to permanently install the statue on the Capitol grounds, arguing that since the Capitol has a Ten Commandments monument, other religions must be allowed to display their symbols there, too.

Hier die #Fotos der #Wanderung heute, es war wieder schön, auf dem #Gipfel etwas windig, aber das Wetter hat super gehalten. #Schottland ohne Regen.

Los ging es im Dorf "Golspie", am Startpunkt gibt es einen Parkplatz mit einem Kaffee und um die Ecke gibt es auch einen Supermarkt falls man noch etwas zu Essen oder zu Trinken kaufen möchte.

Es geht direkt los mit einer langsam ansteigenden Straße und der Bahnstrecke durch. Vom Bahnhof aus kann man auch den Startpunkt gut erreichen.... Show more...

When I was a kid we got to climb the stairs up into the head of this Statue and look out the widows on her crown right under where this guy is.

I remember it was really hot, humid, and dirty in that small room. I did not like it.
