Remarks
This memorial statue is certainly art because it is extremely purposeful and catches the eye of passersby. The fact that the cross is on top of the block makes it very appealing. It took great skill to make the statue the way it is built with the circle around the cross.This is a very important piece of art especially because it is a memorial. The fact that it is placed in the courtyard of the school signifies that it is meant to grab attention and pay their respects to the Felician Sisters, who provided services after the school reopened. It also touches base on the religious diversity that surrounds the city of Pomona. The memorial is supportive of the community because it symbolizes the admiration they have for sisters and thanks them for all they have done for the school. The school demonstrates the pride it has for their members.
