Where would one find this huge monument?
On one of the twin hills in the Mamelles district of Dakar, Senegal, stands a mighty monument.
At 160 feet tall, the bronze African Renaissance Monument is over one-and-a-half times the height of the Statue of Liberty.
It depicts a man with a bare, ripped torso holding an infant aloft in one arm and guiding a woman with the other. The infant points ahead to indicate the glorious future, while the woman extends her arm behind to acknowledge the troubled past. Her hair is swept back by the wind, as are her scant, gossamer-like garments.
