I thought this was appropriate for Armistice day. A statue commemorating Australian soldiers ignoring British High Command's orders not to rescue wounded fellow soldiers in the aftermath of the battle of Fromelles in WW1.
One of my great uncles was here, of the 887 men in his Battalion who went into battle here, he was one of the 106 who answered roll call the next day.

Hoping you and all who you know and love are safe from the fires raging in Australia. Wishing you early abundant rain.
I'm posting this on several threads, to let all our Pentaxian friends down under know we are thinking of them, and their country.

Confucius. As with Columbus and Shakespeare, it's impossible to know how accurate any image of Confucius is.

It wouldn't be nearly as eye-catching in normal posture.

Did it fall over or is that the way it's supposed to be?

By the writing on the base structure, we are looking at the front of the statue.
Was this McKinley's best side?

... or just about anyone else.
Images (paintings/sculpture, etc) of even live models are still subjective to the mind/likes/biases of the artist.
So how can we judge the veracity of a likeness when the person died many many many years ago?

OTOH
I saw a film recently where everyone thought the painting of Winston Churchill was a good likeness of the 80yo man; - and he burnt it!
