TRISTAN CAI -

This monument references the specific account of the apparition of the Virgin Mary in Castle Design, a statuary shop in Orlando, Florida, 1997. Mary was noticed weeping in the form of a mass-produced Pieta.  The reported apparition by the store’s owner drew large crowds in the hundreds daily to the store. Discussions of the apparitions abound in media reports some suggesting it was due to the simultaneously ongoing abortion laws discussed in congress while others attributed the apparition to the ongoing wars perpetrated by America.
