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

About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    Haven’t seen it live yet, haven’t visited Copenhagen for years.
    When I’m back in Denmark, it happens to be in Jutland and the tiny island where my old parents live – years ago I had a day on office almost every friday in Copenhagen. 🙂

  7. 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.

    • 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!
