• Art or Farce: Africa Renaissance Monument in Dakar is a Bold Statement of Either

Never before has a monument drawn so much publicity like the Renaissance Monument of Africa in Dakar. Whilst some art critics hail it as a symbol of power and robust resilience, other have termed it as an colossal expense with vague African features. Constructed of bronze, themonument is made of 3-centimetre thick metal sheets and depicts a family group emerging from a mountaintop: a full-length statue of a young woman, a man, and held aloft on the man’s raised left arm, a child resolutely pointing west towards the sea.
