|The Triumph of Science over Death (Left)|
To satisfy my curiosity and redeem myself for my ignorance of this replica's existence, I decided to check it out this afternoon right after doing some retail therapy (translation: grocery shopping). The statue is in the old research facility of the Department of Health, which according to my research will be part of the Festival Mall's expansion.
I hope that it is true because it would really be sad if development triumphs over this little known and hardly seen piece of heritage. I wonder who made the replica, it clearly has seen its good days and just like the compound where it stands, it is in a decrepit state. I bet our hero would rise from his grave if he sees its present situation.
That's all for now. Till my next wandering, Ciao!
