New York, USA: Jose Marti was a Cuban poet, writer, philosopher and he died in the war for independence from Spain. I found his statue in the central park to be a little strange, bent to one side. The tradition of showing heroes, kings and warriers sitting on a horse is very old, but usually they are shown sitting erect. While in this statue it seems as if Jose Marti is trying to regain his equilibrium as his horse raises his fore-legs.

न्यू योर्क, अमरीकाः होसे मार्ति, क्यूबा के कवि, लेखक, दर्शक व अपने देश की स्पेन से स्वतंत्रता के लिए युद्ध में मरने वाले सैनानी थे. सैँट्रल पार्क में लगी उनकी मूर्ति कुछ अजीब सी लगी, एक ओर को झुकी हुई. नायकों, राजाओं व सैनानियों को घोड़े पर बिठा कर उनकी प्रतिमा बनाने की परम्परा पुरानी है लेकिन उनमें हमेशा व्यक्ति को सीधा तन कर बैठा दिखाया जाता है. जबकि इस मूर्ति में लगता है जैसे घोड़े की अगली टाँगें ऊपर उठने से उनका संतुलन बिगड़ रहा है.

Nuova York, Stati Uniti: Jose Marti era un poeta, scrittore, filosofo cubano che morì durante la guerra di indipendenza dalla Spagna. La sua statua nel central park, l'ho trovata un po' strana, piegata da una parte. La tradizione di mostrare gli eroi, i re e i guerrieri seduti sui cavalli è molto vecchia, ma di solito mostrano le persone sedute con la schiena diritta. Mentre in questa statua sembra che Jose Marti sta cercando di mantenere il suo equilibrio quando il suo cavallo alza le gambe anteriori.
