Black American George Floyd, who was killed during an arrest last year, was put up a monument in New York. The statue, made of thick sheets of light-colored plywood, was unveiled with Floyd’s family members, USA Today reports.
The monument in the form of a man’s head, made in layers from sheets of wood material, will stand for two weeks at an intersection in Brooklyn, and then it will be moved to Manhattan.
“My brother was a victim, and you all should continue to draw attention to this, let the name of my older brother continue to ring in everyone’s ears,” said the brother of the deceased, Terrence Floyd, opening the statue. On the same day, another monument to George Floyd was unveiled in New Jersey: a bronze statue weighing more than 300 kilograms.
