Photographer's Note

Before the castle in Pieskowa Rock, in the Valley Pr±dnik stands tall in the shape of a rock club. Wider at the top, narrower at the base, is the result of weathering, but according to local tradition was here in a different way ...

Prior to a few hundred years ago, during the reign of the last of the Jagiellonian dynasty lived sorcerer named Twardowski. The Wizard has signed a contract with the devil, according to which, after his arrival in Rome he had to give soul to hell.

After many years of Twardowski was finally caught in. .. inn, "Rome," in Krakow's Pychowice. One of the terms of the agreement was to meet the devil's work for the last three for Twardowski. Among the work that the devil had done, was to move the rock to the Valley Pr±dnik and setting its narrower end downwards.

Thus, Hercules' Club was in Pieskowa Rock.

This is a scan of the negative.
