Photographer's Note

This is "stolen" photo of the girl posing with Cumil. There are many photos on TE of this nice man at work but I like this one and post it anyway.
As Bratislava looked to shed the greyness of the Communist era many buildings were repainted. In an attempt to enliven the city centre, a few quirky statues were installed. This guy, residing in the Old Town, dates back only to 1997, but Bratislavians and tourists love him. Children like to abuse him by sitting on his head. More than once has he been damaged by car drivers and there is even special sign "man at work"nearby . Heated discussions have taken place as to what actually the man is up to - you have to decide whether he is simply resting, looking up women's skirts, just cleaned the sewer...The author of the sculpture is Victor Hulik. In 2008 two similar sculptures were installed in Belarus, they are illegal copies of the Cumil.

I know that this red backpack is not needed here but I am not so good in cloning out. Maybe someone will make a Workshop?
