Yea this is interesting, and it is a real big statue of Mr Bird.What more can I say about this, because there is so little to say about it.

Worth a visit if you want to know about the modern political history of Antigua. Next door to market which is good to potter around.

I had seen pictures of this before i went to Antigua, but it still was a surprise when out of nowhere in the middle of a busy St John's Street, there was this monument of their founding father, VC Bird. Also whom their airport is named after. Our driver and Guide Leon stopped so we could get pictures here and... More

As we set out on out island tour, our tour guide stopped to show us this interesting monument. He must have been well liked by the people as there were lots of flowers, memorials left there. Roger Taxi tours provided a private tour of several stops that included the Wyland Wall Mural off of Old Parnum Road for a photo... More

St John's in Antigua is a beautiful island with beautiful people. I visited Antigua because my brother was getting married and I have to say that I had a marvellous and also a most memorable time with my family.

This is a great monument very well done. It seems to jump right out at you when you pass. He must have been well liked by the people.

The statue is quite large and dwarfs the items around it. It is located at an intersection of sorts. The craftsmanship is not the best, but the intention behind it makes up for it.

Came across this monument while walking along market street . Surrounded my market stalls selling fruit etc , not only is it in an unusual setting but looks like a paper mache thing made by the local infant school , don't make a special journey !

When we came across this "monument" our impression was that it was rather odd looking. I've seen similar paper mache figures in a small hotel lobby in Costa Rica but they were amateur made and not depicting any major public hero. All I can think is that money may have been allocated to the erection of a monument and that... More
