Constantin Brâncuşi is one of the greatest Romanian artists, pioneer for the XX-th century abstract sculpture. His pieces of art can be found in museums from Romania, France, U.S.A, Australia, of in some private collections.
The sculptural ensemble in Târgu Jiu was erected as a monument to the fallen Romanian heroes of the First World War. The sculptural elements are disposed on an axis 1,275 meters long, oriented from West to East, nowadays in two parks of the city. From the Jiu River in the West, one can see the Alley of Heroes (representing the time given to a human life), starting with the Table of Silence (Masa Tăcerii - symbolizing birth), boarded by the symbolic chairs (in the shape of hourglasses), passing through the Kissing Gate (Poarta Sărutului - symbol of marriage), and ending with the Endless Column (Coloana Fără Sfârşit/Coloana Infinitului).
The location on Google is this, while more information can be found on the Tg.Jiu City Hall official site, and on the website of the Romanian National Institute For Research & Development in Informatics.
