A Silent Monument

Here's another look at the North Carolina Monument at Gettysburg National Military Park. What spectacular faces! These North Carolina regiment soldiers' faces express so much real emotion and  action. As a photographer, I much prefer sculpture of the human figure to be realistic instead of abstract. Realistic depictions of the human form express so much more when photographed than more modern art approaches to sculpture of human figures. What's your preference -- realistic or abstract?
