This monument, titled Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos) is in Belem, near Lisbon, Portugal. The sculpture represents explorers and discoverers aboard a ship, all looking forward to what they might find during their explorations, with hope in their eyes.

I so wanted to see this and photograph it when I visited Lisbon. Unfortunately I broke my foot right before I went and couldn’t leave the tour bus. 😦 Your photo is wonderful!
