Death unto art, art unto death
Statues have always been a huge part of the world’s culture. Some pieces have achieved great popularity that they’ve become icons in their own right. Consider the Statue of Liberty (New York), Christ the Redeemer ( Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), Great Sphinx (Gaza, Egypt) and many others. They’re become more than pieces of art but cultural landmarks that generations have appreciated and treasured throughout the years.
