Fisherman's Tribute Statue

For this post I am going to share some shots of the Fisherman's tribute Statue on Pier 3 here in New Bedford, I am starting with a close in shot of the fisherman to show the fine detail in this piece of art, which I love and feel makes quite a statement especially located near the pier and docks where many fishing boats dock.

The sculpture was placed in this location back in 2016.
The Fishermen’s Tribute Monument is a bronze statue that depicts the scene of a fishing family; a mother stands near her fisherman husband, who is down on one knee, his daughter in his lap hugging him, his hand on the shoulder of his son who holds a crew cap. The sculpture is the work of New Bedford artist Erik Durant.

For sculptures and statues I often find myself going with Black and White images or my take on B&W often going with Sepia or blues, but I will slip in a color shot to finish off the post

From what I read online the passing of the cap to the son is to signify the continuation of the fishing tradition.

The clinging daughter expresses the regret of separation that her mother must hold in. The woman is located in the back of the scene, standing tall, to represent the wives and mothers who stay behind to hold their families together while fishermen are at sea.
Now for the last shot I did go with a color shot, but as you can see I mostly went with B&W for these images.

I remember this statue from another post a while ago - the statues and especially their faces show so much feelings. They are great pieces of artwork in my eyes.

A tribute to a fisherman...
I am happy to see an entire family depicted in such a tribute.
Often times it is the man and his trade only.
Terrific photos @tattoodjay!

Yes I agree that is what makes it special

Bronze statue speaks volumes about a family living off the sea, detail is most definitely exposed better in the B&W photography.

I like the explanation of the statue along with the pictures. I couldn't imagine being out at sea for as long as those fishermen are.

Ohh yes I respect them it’s such hard work
