The sculpture “The Emigrants” placed at Albert Dock in the city of Liverpool.
A bronze sculpture made by Mark de Graffenried in 2001.
This statue of a young family commemorates migration from Liverpool to the new world.
It was given to the people of Liverpool by the Mormon Church
as a tribute to the many families from all over Europe
who embarked on a brave and pioneering voyage from Liverpool
one of the largest “gates” in Europe to start a new life in America.
According to the skulptøren so the child who stepping forward at the front
symbolises migration to the unknown world.
With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
“Where’s my backpack.?“
this is my 2nd version of the travel theme this week “Inviting“.
Speaking of immigration so today’s biggest problem is our inability to discuss this issue
free of prejudice only with pragmatic objectivity and normally voicings.
