Another statue has been torn down in downtown Denver, this one with ties to Christopher Columbus.
According to History Colorado, the 15-foot- bronze sculpture was designed by Denver sculptor William F. Joseph. It has four faces, arms and legs pointing in four directions and encircled in rings, symbolizing the globe. It’s titled “In Honor of Christopher Columbus.”
The statue has a plaque at its base honoring Columbus. In 1992, the American Indian Movement called for the removal of the plaque, but it still remains.
The statue was found on its side on the sidewalk Friday morning.
