The Family of Man
I love these statues.
They stand in the heart of downtown Calgary.
Twenty one feet tall, they are austere, imposing and beautiful.
And yet they speak to man's fragility.
They are faceless, nameless, raceless.
And every time I see them I am reminded of how, beneath the skin we are all the same the world over.
For me they are a reminder to walk gently upon this earth and to treat one another with respect.
I love these statues, this piece of street art.
Check out my other blog for more information on these statues.
