Poznan – Old Marych Sculpture

I liked this sculpture located at plac Wiosny Ludów in Poznan, primarily because I feel that it represents how I usually ride a bike. It involves walking alongside the bike as the cycling bit for me is far too tiring, it’s just easier to push it.

Anyway, I thought it might be a representation of an interesting local character, but it was decided to make a sculpture of just a typical Poznan resident on his way to work. It isn’t modelled on anyone in particular and it was designed by Juliusz Kubel, a local sculptor.

Apparently it’s now good luck for cyclists to touch the sculpture. But I’m not a cyclist, so I didn’t bother.
