A symbolic transformation is set for this morning at the Wyman Park Dell, where a piece of the park that for many years housed a monument to two Confederate generals will be rededicated to a heralded Maryland-born abolitionist.

Someone Toppled the ‘Madre Luz’ Sculpture that Briefly Replaced Baltimore’s Lee-Jackson Monument

“Madre Luz,” by Pablo Machioli, knocked down in the Wyman Park Dell.

On Thursday morning, Pablo Machioli’s sculpture depicting a pregnant black woman with her fist raised, child on her back, stood proudly atop a marble base in the Wyman Park Dell. By the late afternoon, someone had knocked over and destroyed the sculpture; on a step nearby were the words, “Honor History,” painted in gold.
