Krakow-Wieliczka salt mine - 4

 

The Janowice chamber, excavated in the mid-17th century.  The rock-salt figures were carved in 1967 by miner and sculptor Mieczyslaw Kluzek.  The figures record the legend of the discovery of salt in Poland https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinga_of_Poland#Legend  and http://www.polish4kids.com/kids-zone/legends/45-the-legend-of-saint-kinga

With the lighting it comes across as somewhat spooky. I like your presentation.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis - the displays are really well done.

I am still amazed to see what the miners carved in their spare time Tom. Great reminder.
Tom Wilson: There was some considerable talent at work.
Great, now if we can just find the vinegar...smile
Tom Wilson: You'd need the fish and chips as well, Frank smile
They are very well done, I can imagine there is quite a nice atmosphere in this cave.
Tom Wilson: It's all surprisingly roomy - I didn't have to bend my head at any point.
Really amazing work with such an unusual matrix.
Tom Wilson: Amazing what talent there was down the mine!
A very talented man tom
Tom Wilson: Indeed he was.
