Masaryk Memorial / Crucified Again

“Since 1917 Communists Annihilated 62 Million People” bronze plaque at Masaryktown Park, Toronto.

Josef Randa (1933-2005) sculpture Crucified Again has stood in this beautiful Toronto park since 1989, surrounded by landscaped trees, bushes, and flowers. Tall trees stand behind the monument, while a pathway in front of the monument leads to an open grassed field.

The fiberglass / resin figure and cast stone base showed many areas of loss and surface cracking.
