Warriors at Rest

by Danuta E. Kosk-Kosicka

Regarding her work, the artist says:

This work includes Giewont, the mountain in the Polish Tatras, towering over the town of Zakopane. Legend has it that Giewont is a sleeping knight who will awaken when the time comes. The head, inspired by Greek heroes, was created by the Polish sculptor Igor Mitoraj. The sculpture is installed on the Main Square in Kraków, Poland.
