The sculpture is simply titled Freedom. It was created by artist Zenos Frudakis as a statement about breaking free from the chains that bind, and takes on different meanings for different viewers. For the artist himself, it is about breaking free through his creative process. But this sculpture is also an appropriate depiction of the struggles that people everywhere are feeling in their lives. In a world yearning for absolute freedom to pursue their hope and dreams, this image allows us to find the strength to persevere against odds that seem insurmountable. Every obstacle hides possibilities that we can only grasp if we keep trying. Simply open your mind to those possibilities. Millions are opening up all around you and it’s a glorious sight to behold.
