The Immigrant Monument (ENG/ PT/ DE)

The Immigrant Monument

During a walk I noticed this very emotional work of art.
So I stopped and took a closer look at it.
A family, father, mother, child classically represented. The mother, centrally placed in the middle, holds both her husband's hand and her child's with the other hand. The child looks up at the mother and the father stands there with his arm raised, protective and advancing.
At first I couldn't do too much with it, it was an emotional picture, but I couldn't put it into words, so I took a look at the sign...
It is dedicated to the immigrants...or the emigrants....

The immigrant monument was made in 1999 by Alavaro Raposo Franca and is located on the "Praca 5 de Outubro", which was before known as the "Campo de Sao Francisco".

This monument is made of several materials, both concrete steles and stone mosaics and of course the three large bronze figures and it represents an emigrant family that looks to a better future. The male bronze statue shows emotionally to the west ... to America.
What's always the States isn't it?!
Now the question came up, many emigrated or immigrated to America, but this question remained unanswered so far.

In any case the monument is supposed to be a kind of homage to all the cities on the island of Sao Miguel and to the Azores as a whole.

the creator and artist

The artist of this work is called Álvaro Raposo de França and he himself was born in Ponta Delgada in 1940. Álvaro Raposo de França graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Porto in 1965 and graduated from Coimba University in Education in 1972.

His artworks reflect the mental structure of the 20th century in a very special way. Álvaro Raposo de Franças' works include both public sculptures and private and expressive individual works of art.

O Monumento ao Imigrante

Durante um passeio notei esta obra de arte muito emocional.
Então parei e olhei mais de perto.
Uma família, pai, mãe, criança classicamente representada. A mãe, centralmente colocada no meio, segura tanto a mão do marido como a do filho com a outra mão. A criança olha para a mãe e o pai fica ali com o braço levantado, protetor e avançado.
No início não podia fazer muito com ele, era um quadro emocional, mas não conseguia colocá-lo em palavras, por isso olhei para o sinal...
É dedicado aos imigrantes... ou aos emigrantes.....

O monumento aos imigrantes foi feito em 1999 por Alavaro Raposo Franca e está localizado na "Praca 5 de Outubro", que antes era conhecida como o "Campo de São Francisco".

Este monumento é feito de vários materiais, tanto estelas de betão como mosaicos de pedra e, claro, as três grandes figuras de bronze e representa uma família emigrante que olha para um futuro melhor. A estátua masculina de bronze mostra-se emocionalmente para o oeste... para a América.
O que mais... é sempre os Estados Unidos, não é?!
Agora a questão surgiu, muitos emigraram ou imigraram para a América, mas esta questão permaneceu sem resposta até agora.

De qualquer forma, o monumento é suposto ser uma espécie de homenagem a todas as cidades da ilha de São Miguel e aos Açores como um todo.

Das Einwanderer Denkmal

Bei einem einstigen Spaziergang fiel mir dieses stark emotionale Kunstwerk auf.
Also blieb ich stehen und schaute es mir genauer an.
Eine Familie, Vater, Mutter, Kind-klassisch dargestellt. Die Mutter zentral in der Mitte platziert, hält sowohl die Hand ihres Gattens als auch mit der anderen Hand ihr Kind. Das kind blickt auf zur Mutter und der Vater steht schützend, voranschreitend mit erhobenem Arm da.
Ich konnte zuerst nicht allzuviel damit anfangen, zwar war es ein emotionales Bild, doch ich konnte es nicht in Worte fassen, weshalb ich mal einen Blick auf das Schild geworfen habe...
Es ist den Einwanderern gewidmet...oder den Auswandern...

Das Einwanderer-Denkmal wurde im Jahre 1999 von Alavaro Raposo Franca gemacht und befindet sich auf der “Praca 5 de Outubro“, was damals der “Campo de Sao Francisco“ war.

Dieses Denkmal besteht aus mehreren Materialien, sowohl Betonstelen, als auch Steinmosaiken und natürlich den drei großen Bronzefiguren und stellt eine Auswandererfamilie dar, die in eine bessere Zukunft blickt. Die männliche Bronzestatue zeigt emotional nach Westen ... nach Amerika.
Nun kam bei mir die Frage auf, sind viele nach Amerika ausgewandert oder eingewandert, doch diese Frage blieb bislang unbeantwortet.

Auf jedenfall soll das Denkmal eine Art Hommage an alle Städte auf der Insel Sao Miguel und ganzheitlich den Azoren sein.

der Macher

Der Künstler dieses Werkes heißt Álvaro Raposo de França und er wurde selbst im Jahr1940 in Ponta Delgada zur Welt gebracht. Álvaro Raposo de França absolvierte 1965 die “School of Fine Arts“ in Porto und schloss 1972 den Studiengang Erziehungswissenschaften an der Universität Coimba ab.

Seine Kunstwerke spiegeln auf ganz spezielle Art und Weise die mentale Struktur des 20. Jahrhunderts wider. Álvaro Raposo de Franças Werke beinhalten sowohl öffentliche Skulpturen als auch private und ausdrucksstarke, individuelle Kunstwerke.

Wie wirkt seine Kunst auf euch?
Lasst es mich gern im Kommentarfeld wissen.
