The African Renaissance Monument, located in the middle of the bustling capital of Senegal, Dakar, is a towering bronze statue that stands at a height of 161-feet, making it the tallest statue in Africa. The monument was built to celebrate the rebirth of Africa and its cultural and historical heritage. The story behind this iconic structure is one of ambition, pride, and hope for a brighter future.
The idea for the African Renaissance Monument was first proposed by Senegal’s former President, Abdoulaye Wade, in the year 2000. The President had a vision of creating a landmark that would symbolize the rebirth of Africa and its cultural and historical heritage.
He wanted the monument to be a symbol of unity and hope for a brighter future for the continent. The President also wanted the monument to be a tourist attraction that would bring people from all over the world to Senegal.
The project was initially met with skepticism, as many felt that it was too ambitious and costly. However, President Wade was determined to see the project through and he began to gather support for the project. He enlisted the help of a team of architects, engineers, and artists to help design and build the monument.
