Final Post

For my final post, I chose the statue of the flag raising at Iwo Jima.  This particular statue is located in Washington D.C. on the national mall.  I chose this piece because though most people view this as a memorial to WWII and the battle of Iwo Jima itself, it is still a work of art which I think many people some times forget.  The amount of detail that can be seen in close-ups of this statue is amazing.  The facial features and the realistic nature of the figures helps the viewer connect on a deeper level with the statue.  The viewer can develop a deeper sense of gratitude for those who fought on Iwo Jima because of this piece.
