If you live in the central areas of the island, you've probably already spotted this new art installation in Naxxar, on the roundabout just before it-Tela' t'Alla u Ommu.
Although it's been installed for a few weeks, the official inauguration of the art piece, Humanity In Glory by Sonny Gatt only took place yesterday.
In an Instagram post, Sonny shared his perception of the art piece saying, "The more time passes by the human is always facing different difficulties making the human in dire straits. However, it's the human being that stands there and keeps striving for humanity. Life keeps strong and fights all, making the human the most important being in mankind," he explained.

The Humanity In Glory piece was announced back in 2019 as part of a six-piece project intended to decorate different localities around the island.
Ian Borg, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, shared the unveiling with his followers on his Facebook page. In the caption, he wrote, "a third call for art projects in public spaces will be launched in the coming weeks," so keep a lookout if you're an artist and want your piece to be displayed publically.
This project was a collaboration between the artist Sonny Gatt, Naxxar Mayor, AnneMarie Muscat Fenech Adami, and the Public Works Department Malta.
