Why not round up all of the old Confederate statues and put them together in a grassy public park, perhaps on the site of a famous Civil War battle (Bull Run?!). Then mix in some appropriate interpretation at a new visitor centre for added context.
This 6 foot tall nude sculpture has been halting traffic on the TransCanada Highway in rural PEI since 1974. She’s a right beauty, and sometimes in the spring she wears a grass skirt. As far as I know, she’s one of a kind, at least here on the Island…which is saying somethin’ 😉
Often travel simply serves to “open your mind, til you can’t get your head through the door” (per Elvis Costello)…but this is different. You really should go see this…it’s an opportunity for Israelis (& other local tourists) to come face-to-face with the brutal concrete wall that they have built to fence themselves in. “Oh little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie…”

The sculptor of “dirty corner” (aka the Queen’s vagina) located in Versailles France says that he will not remove hateful graffiti from his sculpture, for educational reasons.
Anish Kapoor is being sued for not removing the racist graffiti. What do you think?
