Arts and Craft : Two Lovers Point Statue

Arts and Craft (Post#9) : Two Lovers Point Statue

Two Lovers Point is not the only one that has story on its own, if the tourist spot has its legends and real love story that surrounds it, even the Two Lovers Point Statue has its own. Last 2002, Typhoon Pongsona twisted and knocked the statue to the ground. Many believed that it’s too great to repair, the brass lovers was sold as scrap. The amazing facts happened about the statue, after 13 years, it was put back again to its location because of the people who now involve in the real love story that surrounds the place. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.

Arts and Craft : World War II Memorial – Cenotaph Sculpture By George Allen

Arts and Craft (Post#3) : World War II Memorial – Cenotaph Sculpture By George Allen

Within the area of Shrine of Remembrance, there are lots of sculpture are displayed which depicts the bravery and brotherhood of soldiers at war. This sculpture at the top of the Cenotaph which stands at the forecourt captured my attention and admired it more when I discovered that the statuary shows six men in the uniforms of the three Australian services – Navy, Army, and Air Force carrying a bier on which lies the figure of the dead comrade draped with Australian National Flag. It symbolizes the debt of the living to the dead, the eternal bond between the fallen and those who enjoy the fruits of their sacrifice.
