Washington’s Other Monuments via NatGeo
One instance where the embellishment of scale is the norm is in the practice of statues and monuments, they represent the power and ideas behind the valor of the individual they represent . Here we can see even more grand plans for Washington D.C. that were never realized. One can’t help but make a connection between the size of the monument and the size of idea.
Scale is honor; the nobler the larger.
