2/3 #NewOrleans Backlog, #ThingsYouFindHidden . A more #complicated image of #history meeting #humanity . This #column is the only evidence of Robert E. Lee's equestrian #statue that lent its name to this roundabout along #StCharlesStreet . As the somewhat new World War II Museum rises behind the northwest side, it all feels either eerie, hopeful, or unresolved. However unintentional, the superstructures feel appropriate as scaffolding for an undefined future under construction. There is, however, a jarring feeling to coming upon a sight like this as an interloper, but speaks to the complex traumas that surround these symbols, both in their creation and their dismantling. The conversations around it all, one imagines, are likely equally bruising and only just beginning. Pretty powerful #symbolism at play, here.
