  The Family of Man
by scottishvisitor

The ten sculptures, some measuring 6.5 metres and weighing 680 kilograms are cast in aluminium. The statues were presented to the city by Maxwell Cummings and Sons. The family of man was designed by the English artist Mario Armengol. They were dedicated to the city on 8th. July 1968 by the Duke of Kent. I liked the skinny statues standing in their circle reaching up to the blue summer sky.
