The immense exhibit depicts a child, two women and three men performing their daily duties.The six statues have a value of $31 million (US$150,000). It was a donation made by the Government of India to Guyana in 2017.The APNU+AFC Government had intended to declare the monument site open at least before December of 2018, since the project was high on its national agenda. However, after assuming office in 2015, the Government discovered numerous faults to the design built by the previous administration, which had to be revised.Additionally, in April of last year, months before the sculptures were installed, the base which was constructed to support the six statues had collapsed. According to Chung, this incident was one which contributed to the delay of the project’s completion.last_img read more
