    The Market Square, Krakow




    The enigmatic head graces the square

    The plaque reads: Igor Mitoraj

    Eros Bendato Braz 1999

    Dar Artysty Dla Miasta Krakowa 2005 (Given by artist to Krakow in 2005)

    I don’t speak Polish, but this looks more like Latin and seems to mean Bound Eros.

    This is an intriguing sculpture in the western corner of the main market square (the Rynek Glowny) of Krakow, Poland: a huge hollow bronze head, laying on its side, and bound with 2 strips of bronze tape. Visitors are fascinated and stop to look, touch it, and take photos on it or next to it. It’s certainly an unusual modern touch in the old square with its gorgeous medieval buildings. People refer to it as “The Head” but its official name is Eros Bendato, and is the work of Polish artist Igor Mitoraj (born 1944 in Germany).

    I can't remember arches like that but the buildings remind me of Obidos in Portugal.
