Last week’s Monday Mystery Photograph

Last week we were in Wroclaw, (pronounced more like Vratslav), in Silesia, Poland checking out – “The Anonymous Pedestrians.”

I have to say I found this incredibly powerful piece of street art. Sources state that the statues are representative of all the people working, for so many years, in the Polish underground movements. As Poland has struggled for centuries with self-determination, it has a poignant theme and spans many generations of untold struggle, heroism and resilience. A really significant piece of Polish art, worth seeing, if you ever have the pleasure of visiting Poland.

“The wonderfully lifelike bronze statues descending into the earth are based on Jerzy Kalina’s temporary art installation set up in Warsaw in 1977; the original plaster sculptures, stored in the Wrocław National Museum for 28 years, were re-cast in bronze and unveiled in the middle of the night on the 24th anniversary of the introduction of martial law in Poland.” [Source: inyourpocket,com]

Wroclaw has much more to offer and I personally loved the city. The old town and surrounds are very special. Intrigued? Read more about it here

  1. I am going to Wroclaw soon Amanda! I am really excited 🙂 It’s supposed to be one of the beautiful Polish cities. We’ll see.
    I’ll guess that it’s the Netherlands this week. Or it could be Denmark too.. Hmmm, I’ll go for the Netherlands.

    1. I am so excited for you, Pooja. You will love it. I went to a old time restaurant – upstairs in the old town buildings, serving old time traditional polish cuisine, Pierogi and a kind of polish pancake, sort of a hash brown type of thing – we would call them potato scallops. Served with a jug of juice, it was a steal at $15. Near the town hall,flower market, church end of the square. Also went for a walk along the river crossing the bridge. Fabulous old buildings there. Enjoy. I will look forward to the post.
      I also noted your answer!

    1. As awful as the devastation from the war must have been, at least they were able to start with a clean slate and develop functionally good architecture. Not all cities were rebuilt with good planning, could you say?
