Seeking photo of small monument on Portuguese way to women victims of domestic violence

I saw a monument, only about 6 feet tall, made up of stones carried by people to the site to memorialize a loved one killed or disabled/maimed by domestic violence. There is an inscription on the plinth pleading for all of us to bear witness and to stop domestic violence from occurring.
In a file transfer I lost a section of photos and that was among them.
If anyone has a photo to share, I would be most grateful. It is for a university lecture on what monuments usually memorialize and usually try to forget.

Whereabouts is this monument on the Portuguese Way?

What a poignant figure this is, filled with the weight of human misery. Thank you for sharing it David. Where is the statue located?

David -- THANK YOU so much! Did you happen to catch the location and the paragraph inscription on it? Is my memory of the location roughly correct?
And THANK YOU again!
This is the location, as best as I can tell:
42°13'44.0"N 8°36'38.1"W
It is certainly on the Camino Portugues, Central Route, between O Porriño and Redondela.

And this is the description, although you will have to translate yourself:

Always happy to be of help.

I do not recall for certain, but I think that it is between Valença and Santa Comba. .... I think.
We will be doing this Camino in April so will keep an eye out for it and send photos to you if we do find it.

It's a lovely photo; thank you for sharing it.
You're welcome.

As I remember it, you walk across a park area on that section and you'll see the monument.

Yes, I've seen it. And I had photos of it... but a SW update seems to have caused some of my photos to go missing.

Oh that's bad luck. Camino pictures and memories are so important
