MUST-SEE Sculptures #4: The Monument Of An Anonymous Passerby, Wroclaw, Poland

PASSAGE BY JERZY KALINA. The magazine Arch2O has published their list of the most creative sculptures in the world. Among them is a piece by Polish artist Jerzy Kalina in Wrocław.

At the end of May 2015, the architecture and design magazine Arch2O published their list of 25 most creative statues on their Facebook page. Among the monuments was an outstanding piece by Kalina. His famous sculpture Passage, which is commonly called Monument to the Anonymous Passerby, stood in Warsaw temporarily in 1977, and was moved to an intersection in Wrocław in 2005. The installation consists of 14 figures. The main character is a woman, and the other figures are her family, half of whom fall to the ground in front of her, and the other half of whom are climbing up behind her.
