Not very expressive, but quite interesting!

These are very interesting.

I'm reminded of monks.

Hmmm...I don't know quite what to think of these. On the one hand they resemble spiritual seekers, but that doesn't really apply to the younger person. On the other hand, they could be prisoners marching to their destiny or Jews being led to the trains heading for Auschwitz. Intriguing statues for sure.

I like them. They remind me of some sculpture in Dublin that represent the starving Irish leaving for America during the potato famine.

Migrant families?

Karl, what is the story behind this tragic sculpture?

VP has made an odd comment about these faces being not very expressive. I think they ARE expressive. They just express something angst-filled.

Oh my gosh! They are sad but at the same time wonderful Karl, so many in a line I think they have a message!
