Serbia - (Yugslovia) - Belgrade - 8-9.4.1970
From Wiki- The statue was originally supposed to be placed on the Terazije Square, but ended up at Belgrade Fortress after people complained about it's nudity.
The statue is holding a falcon in one hand and is on watch for the new threats on the horizon, in the other hand a sword of war ready to encounter these threats. The statue is looking across the confluence of the Sava and the Danube and over the vast Pannonian Plain towards the very distant Fruska Gora Mountain and the Austro Hungarian Empire. This Statue is probably the most powerful and popular visual symbol of Belgrade.
