Heroes of South Dobrogea Monument
Public Art : Heroes of South Dobrogea Monument
Sculptor: © Doru Nuta
Description: The artist Doru Nuta has a personal
connection to this work. Nuta was as a young soldier involved in the revolution in Romania. "Captured in fear
and coldness one stood up in hope, inadequate shoes, cloths and arms. Arms and legs are bursting out of stone,
trying to reach freedom from sadness, pain and desperation - symbolized by the heavy weight of a rock. The
exhaustion and calmness that lie within this monument consolidate this artwork at the interface of a painful past
and vulnerable future."
Date Unveiled: 1998
