Shrouded Piłsudski

A new statue of Józef Piłsudski is to be revealed in Krakow for Poland’s Independence Day (November 11th). Since the site is just around the corner from where I live I thought I’d pop down and have a look. Here’s a rare sight – the statue of a major national figure shrouded in plastic and waiting to be revealed to the world.

According to the plaque that accompanies it the unveiling will take place tomorrow on the 10th of November. Let’s hope nothing untoward happens between today and tomorrow that would make the plaque a liar.

These fine fellows have also been installed to accompany the former military dictator:

    Looks more like a Halloween character now. Given the government’s Independence Day fo pahs – I wonder who has been invited to the unveiling or even if somebody remembered there is such an event

    It seems a witch with a broom is hiding underneath that plastic wrapping…

    Maybe one Kaczynski brother standing on the shoulders of the other?
