The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Hemicycle to Benito Juarez, at south side of Alameda Central in the Historic Center, finished on September 18 1910. This figures represents The Glory & The Justice.
Juárez's famous quotation continues to be well-remembered in Mexico: Entre los individuos, como entre las naciones, el respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz, meaning "Among individuals, as among nations, respect for the rights of others is peace."
Juárez was given the title of "Benemérito de las Américas" ("the Meritorious one of the Americas") by the government of the Republic of Colombia, on May 1, 1865.
