I generally agree with you regarding statues, though this one of Albert Einstein at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, is an exception.I'm not keen on statues. Most of them are simply street clutter, passers by not noticing or having a clue who they're commemorating. Some are worth keeping for genuine historical importance and/or artistic merit, but I'd never subscribe to putting up yet more.

There are much better ways to remember and celebrate her - like reading her writings, and thinking about and acting upon what they still have to say to us today.
