How come it survived? Because the people liked him?
Nice shot but who is he ??
echoing both questions ... who and why?
Dina, Most of the statues were destroyed by people as statues were considered pagan/un-islamic. I guess this one survived just by chance or maybe because Alfred Woolner was an educator and had done a lot for the community.Alex, He was first the librarian and later the Vice Chancellor of the biggest University in the Pakistan Region.Chuck I hope I answered both your questions.
Again another mini history lesson.,always a pleasure to stop by your posts.
in mumbai most of the statues from that era have been shifted to the museum compound
Ah, I see. It sounds like what happened to the Catholic churches in Europe when the Reformation sweep through.I have a LOT to learn about your history, so I'll be back.Your faithful reader
