"Behold the neck of pride severed by the hand of humility."
Your statue and your link are fascinating, although I'm glad we don't have such a statue in Israel.

The weak against the strong...winning perhaps because they are humble! Enjoyed learning more about this statue, interesting history! The "cushion" under the statue is equally fascinating!
