This work should be viewed in the light of the debate in the United States and South Africa this summer. Should statues be seen as a link to our history or do they symbolize a dark past of segregation and slavery?

Maybe all statues are temporary. They are erected for symbolic reasons in one era – in materials thought to last forever – but in the next era they need to be moved, hidden away and maybe be forgotten.
