The Cenotaph, Durban

The Cenotaph was erected in Farewell Square, Durban, South Africa, as a war memorial to soldiers who died in World War I.

Standing about 11 metres (36 feet) high, the Cenotaph is built out of granite decorated with glazed ceramic tiles depicting two angels raising the soul of a dead soldier. The vivid color of the figurative decoration makes the Cenotaph possibly unique among World War I memorials of its kind.
