Additional Information:

The first photo was taken in 1984 by John Wright. Apparently the image of an unnamed (to me) politician, flogging a dead race was Winston's inspiration behind this monument.

The monument appears to be one of Winston's signature sculptures. Here is Winston with a demo sculpture that he used to illustrate his techniques (both this and the second photo above were take in 1967 by T. Cliffor Hodgson).
