were originally supposed to be burning #confederateflags
but I just didn't feel like drawing, cutting and painting that shit. Inspired by the original memorial in #ForsythPark
that featured two gorgeous statues including this one, "Silence". The original #CivilWar
memorial was beautiful and took more of a philosophical approach to the horrors of war. Shortly after it was unveiled, it was decided more attention should be paid specifically to confederate soldiers and the massive memorial was drastically altered. Gone was the beauty and detail, replaced with a singular confederate soldier and a clear desire to celebrate the losing separatists, slave owning confederates. Yawn. Boo.
