Beautiful details that wouldn't really be noticed from the ground. I'm struck by how clean the stone looks.

So which of the two virtues, if that's the right word, it more important. Why is the white statue crowned with a black wreath? The monument is full of questions.

Bright sun, blue skies, crisp white and sharp shadows. Your images are perfect in their detail.
