We passed this walking from Funchal to Camera de lobos. I did nt fancy chancing things withe traffic to understand what it was and had to ask Dr Google once I got back. Perhaps a plaque on the pavement might be an idea?

It is certainly macabre and poignant. I have passed it so many times as it is near the Forum and the hotel at which I stay (Jardin d'ajuda Suite). I had been told so many stories about the sculpture (mostly untruths) but was glad to find out that it is a tribute to the many construction workers who lost their lives during the construction of the large number of tunnels and bridges (old and recent). I am a retired engineering geologist having worked on these sorts of projects and am very impressed with the quality of the engineering particularly in respect of the tunnels, rock face stabilisation and bridges. There are some FINE examples of cantilevered cable stayed viaducts.

Came across this large monument on a roundabout at far end of Estrada Monumental near Forum shopping centre. To be honest I would have liked to know more about it and although there was a plaque on the roundabout in front of it, dicing with traffic to reach it is not the sort of activity I want to be doing at my age!!

As we explored the island by bus we kept passing this very poignant statue.

The island, we now know, has had many tunnels built through the hills, and this was erected as a monument to those who perished in their construction.

Built in recognition of workers who lost their lives building tunnels. It’s opposite the Pestana Royal Hotel. Worth a visit

I guess it is nice that the workers have been honoured but this looks a very sad statue.

Our guide told us that it was made in memory of the workers who lost their lives whilst building tunnels across the island. There are so many tunnels (over 200 I believe) where they have tried to protect the landscape and feed roads through them.

It is situated in the middle of a roundabout,

In a town full of statues and monuments, this has to be the biggest (and maybe the only one that actually moves).

Near the west end of Estrada Monumental is a huge swinging statue. Monumento ao Trabalhador or monument to the worker. It is “from the Association of the Masters Class to all employees responsible for the development of the civil construction and public works sector on the island of Madeira.” (From Visit Funchal)

The sculpture Ricardo Velosa made this in 2004.

We are always amazed when we pass by this. I am sure that you will be astonished too.
