OK, I have had this Cenotaph for a couple of years. It is in Denver, Colorado. Where does a cenotaph go? NOTE: I saw the category for Canadian Cenotaphs - but that won't work.)

 

 

There is no general answer for that. I guess it depends on which group of persons the cenotaph is for. One possible category would be Citizen Memorials of course. Or one of the War categories in the Monuments department. Further details would be helpful.

In front of the city hall of Bergen of Zoom I found a cool plaque with the inscription: D'historie/van deez'plaats/mag Bergen leren:/laat eigen vrijheid/nooit/in 't Tegendeel/verkeren (From the history of this place Bergen may learn; let liberty never become the opposite). The plaque has been placed at the location of the Liberty tree, which has been erected of the occasion of the French revolution in 1795. It has been placed by the Tafelronde, the Dutch branch of The International Order of the Round Table. Enough cool elements but what is the best fit for this waymark?

You can try the Smithsonian inventory if it's listed there. When all else fails, try the relief art sculpture category. At least it'll go somewhere. IOOF should accept these as they have in the past. You might also want to try the citizen memorials category. If this is not a grave, I will approve it there.

Sounds like Political Revolutions might be a fit.

Well, I would try the round table category first.

Thanks! It's approved! As a bonus it's the first political revolutions wm in the netherlands! The knights of the round table dont have a category right now, could be a fun category...

 

Great to hear that it's been approved.

 

From your Waymark:

" the citizens of the Netherlands also seized power instead of the elite and nobility. To mark this, freedom trees were placed everywhere, including here in front of the town hall."

From that I must assume that there are many, many more Political Revolutions Waymarks to be had in The Netherlands! Go Get 'Em!! :)

I have trouble to find any suitable category for illuminated art. We have huge DNA-spiral kind of illuminated art on powerplant. It is visible mostly during evening / night time. Belongs to city's artcollection.

Terve serkku Kai - How goes it over there? I would write you, but my life is so deadly dull these days I can't find anything to write - unless I were to resort to prevarication, fantasy and hyperbole. :D

 

Anyhow, about that Water memory, light art work thingie: It's not kinetic, it's not realistic, it's not figurative, it's not silhouette - in fact it's not a whole lotta things.

I see that it's actually in Turku, which is good in case you need to go and get more pix.

Given what it's not, I am gonna say that IF you had some nice day AND night shots of it AND you did a really great writeup I just might accept it in Abstract Public Sculptures:)

 

After all, if it shows well in your pix and reads well in your writeup it deserves a place in Waymarking.

So go get those pix, if you don't have them already, write it up and send it in. At this time of the year night shots in Turku ought to be a proverbial walk in the park.

Serkkusi, Keith
