Hi Enakshi, This is such a well researched and comprehensive piece! Really enjoyed reading it! Also, when one thinks of revolution, sculpture as an art form has also been used since a lot ancient times as it is more 'public' and the 3D form helps it reinforce the symbolism of radical ideas. Conversely, Saddam's statue bring pulled down is one of the most enduring images of the end of his regime. When revolution happens, a few statues get smashed or toppled!
