Default Last of mankind

Hi

in 1917 Anton Hanak made a sculpture called "The last of mankind".
It is, since some years, positioned in front of the "Wien Museum" near to famous "Karlskirche" in Vienna/Austria.

Only rarely can we make a photograph of a great work of art that not only respects and clearly celebrates its grandeur and worth, but also creates a context that is epic.

That is what I feel you have achieved here. Salutations for your creativity. I now have to study this work and catch up on Anton Hanak!
