BEAUTY OF ART AND IMAGES FOR YOU
Sculptures not very famous
I have sought, in several countries, artistic beauties, little known; Here’s what I found for you, in:
LISBON – Portugal
Prince Henry the Navigator and friends
Henry the Navigator is the figure at the tip of the monument, looking out over the river. Behind Henry, on both sides of the monument, are statues of 33 great people of that era, including explorers, cartographers, artists, scientists and missionaries.
