Copy of a Greek bronze statue of ca. 450–425 B.C. In Greek art, the Amazons, a mythical race of warrior women from Asia Minor, were often depicted battling such heroes as Herakles, Achilles, and Theseus. This statue represents a refugee from battle who has lost her weapons and bleeds from a wound under her right breast.
The Canadian Pacific Railroad commissioned three statues, called "Winged Angel", from Montreal Sculptor Coeur de Lion MacCarthy, to commemorate the 1,116 employees it lost in WWI. Statues were unveiled in 1922 in Winnipeg, Montréal and Vancouver.
Very interesting sculpture. "Der Buchhändler" [The Book Seller, literally: "somebody who handles books"] on the Ludwig-Metzger-Platz in Darmstadt, Germany. Sculpture by Michael Schwarze, photograph by Neil Gallop.
