Is is with mixed emotion that I publish this photo. The person depicted in the statue is Christopher Columbus the man who ‘discovered’ the new world. How someone discovers something where people have already lived for 1000s of years is beyond me.
I guess, when your view of life is hopelessly self-centered, nothing exists until that person sets eyes upon it for the very first time. A more apt term for what Columbus did is invaded the Americas for his legacy is enslavement, murder, rape, pillage, plunder.
I changed the sky here to tell the story of how I believe those original inhabitants felt when they were invaded. The white man came and plunged history into a nightmare.
