  • SYMBOLIC PUBLIC MONUMENTS

     

    Carbonell during his lifetime won several competitions for the creation of Public Monuments including the 53-fooot bronze carving the "Pillar of History", a graphical narration of the lives of the Tequesta Indians, Miami's first inhabitants topped by the sculpture "Tequesta Family" located at the center span of the Brickell Avenue Bridge, Miami, Florida.

     

    Other important monuments include the 21-foot "El Centinela Del Rio" at Tequesta Point, Brickell Key, Miami, Florida, the 26-foot "Madonna of Fatima" for the Blue Army Shrine, Washington, New Jersey, a 15-foot "Horse and Rider" for the former Burt Reynold's Dinner Theater, Jupiter, Florida and the 6-foot marble statue of Cuban Patriot "Jose Marti" for the San Carlos Institute, Key West, Florida.

     

    Carbonell's commissioned work were more figurative and the anatomical accuracy more subject to the artist's internalized sensations, while his personal style was Modern.
