Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos)

A recreation of the real monument, and awarded with the 2nd Place of a cake competition (Portuguese monuments or artfacts themed) organized by Faça Fácil Cake Design Portuguese magazine this year.
I took photos from both sides, back and some details of the 33 historical figures that compose this magnificent monument in Lisbon, Portugal. See the real one and compare :)

Padrão dos Descobrimentos. Monument to the Discoveries is a monument on the northern bank of the Tagus River estuary, in the civil parish of Santa Maria de Belém, Lisbon. Located along the river where ships departed to explore and trade with India and Orient, the monument celebrates the Portuguese Age of Discovery (or Age of Exploration) during the 15th and 16th centuries.
