Porte du Troisième millénaire, Dakar

Porte du Troisième millénaire is a modern monument in Dakar. It symbolizes the African continent at the crossroads of the millennia. The monument is 16.50 m in height, and is actually a silhouette facing the sea in combination with three doors, each with a message, surrounded by three baobab trees offered by King Fahd and a pool- its water symbolizing life. The statue was inaugurated in 2001, and was designed by the Senegalese architect Pierre Goudiaby Atepa.
