Danish Mask


Another mask on the building facades 
in the Broadway business district. 


The adjacent plaque says

KING MASK
Danish

Stone carvings commemorate important events.
Here, a carving erected by a son
honors his father's death in battle
"when two kings fought."

My father!
My king!

Here
in this place
now sacred
where you were slain.

In stone 
again
we honor you
forever.
