Our Silences

IMG_9645It’s Throw Back Thursday! I made a post on a Thursday a few months ago on the artist Rivelino and his thumb statue in Trafalgar Square in London. Jumping continents Rivelino once again has a large scale work in a very public center, the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Lining a pedestrian walkway stand ten larger than life white and brown busts. Their eyes and noses are shown but their mouths are covered serving as a symbol for free speech. San Francisco is not the only location to see these statues. They are currently stationed across the globe in Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the UK, Russia and Mexico in addition to the US.
