    44 reviews

    This memorial has a very unique appearance and definitely makes a strong impact on the visitor. The group of soldiers are scattered throughout, each appearing to walk toward an unknown focal point. A beautiful wall to the right of the figures reflects their positions amid varying scenes of people of different races and places.

I don't know what to make of it myself, although it's certainly interesting that the artist selected to construct the massive sculpture ...
