Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Monuments and memorials are statues, obelisks, and other types of objects which serve as a focus for memory of something, usually a person (who has died) or an event. Popular forms of memorials include landmark objects or art objects such as sculptures, statues or fountains.

(Note, monuments and memorials in the U.S. include National Memorials like the Washington Monument, but this category is not meant to describe various natural park-type places such as Devils Postpile which happen to be given the legal name "National Monument" for reasons unrelated to any memorial.)
