Sorry, I don't share your enthusiasm.
Totally looks like Soviet Stalinist era "brutalist" mega-monuments you see all over the former USSR, Mao's China and North Korea.

And appropriately enough, it was built by a company from North Korea, designed by a Romanian who used to create similar monuments for Ceaușescu by order of a dictator. "[atlasobscura.com];

Don't be surprised if Trump wants to 'erect' (important choice of words) something like this as his "memorial."

If he does they'd better make it with a huge belly, a double chin, tiny hands and duck lips. smile009.gif

@mzbehavin and they better make it bullet proof.

The fact that there will one day be a Trump Presidential Library is infuriating.

That being said, I think the monument looks cool. Senegal is always a place I've wanted to visit, especially now that they've opened their own African history museum. Would be awesome to see!
