considered one of Lithuania’s most celebrated statues the Black Ghost looks like a harry
potter dementor crawling out of the water onto the pier. The bronze hooded statue stands over 2.4 meters
tall..its long bony fingers extend out from its cloak gripping a lantern. The black ghost is based on an old Lithuania

as it had appeared. #16 Break Throgh From Your Mold Zenos Frudakis

infinitely into the heavens, it is just an optical illusion. #13 vicissitudes by Jason Decaires Taylor

Alexander Milov You will find amazing works of art and sculptures
at the yearly burning man festival in Nevada, but in 2016 one really stood out. Love by Urkainian sculptor Alexander Milov
said his piece demonstrated the conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and
inner expression of human nature. Their inner selves are executed in the form
of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark (night falls) the children
start to shine. This shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity
that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives.” #08 Mustangs By Robert Glen Laas Colinas. Growing up in Texas I had the pleasure of
seeing this sculpture in person many times. Mustangs by Robert Glen is a bronze sculpture
located in Williams Square in the community of Las Colinas located just outside of Dallas,
Texas. Considered to be the largest equestrian sculpture
in the world it commemorates the wild mustangs that once inhabited a vast majority of the

horses hooves splashing as they make their way across the fountain. #07 Mihai Eminescu Romania Mihai Eminescu was a Romanian poet and this

on their way to work were on display in Marseille. Titled the voyagers, Their purpose was designed
