I think of monuments as creations which celebrate people or events. They are often sculptural, but not necessarily so, just as sculptures are not necessarily monumental. Either can be memorial, but memorials are perhaps something a bit different, variously monumental, sculptural or neither. Anyway I think we all have some idea of what attracts us to objects which might be described as having monumental, sculptural or memorial characteristics and which are sufficiently distinctive in form, character, materials, historical interest or whatever to draw the attention of our cameras. So let's see the range of our interests, large or small, permanent or transient, iconic or mundane.
To get you in the mood, I'll start with three iconic sculptures from The Louvre and a few less iconic offerings - gift from our grandson, browsing the bookstores of Hay-on-Wye (famous in UK), and an entry in a student contest to raise funds for our local Food Bank, "the Canstruction Challenge"
So when you're In the Mood, Anything Goes

Thank you, Kaskazi, so much for hosting. This will be interesting for sure. Because its Memorial Day in the US, here are some war monuments. This one is in the center of Portland, Maine, in the city center known as Monument Square. Lady Liberty and representatives of the service branches are around the base. These, I believe are Civil war.
