Fairey IIID: Portuguese Navegantes (II).

Fairey IIID: Portuguese Navegantes (II).

The stunningly explicit monument that commemorated the first Southern Atlantic Ocean Crossing in 1922. Belém, close to Lisbon.
Better than some allegorical artwork to me: the Fairey IIID was a masterpiece in itself.
