Krakow-Wieliczka salt mine - 8

 

Rock salt statue of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - German writer and statesman. I've no idea what he is doing there, unless he was one of the famous visitors.

L'endroit est sombre et guère rassurant.
smile Who knows - perhaps the sculptor was a fan! smile

I backtracked your posts on the Salt mine, Tom. That is some experience deep down there. Great pictures of the displays.
I did some search on the World Wide Web and thank you WIKI, this is what I found....: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was a German writer and statesman. In 1776, Goethe formed a close relationship to Charlotte von Stein, an older, married woman. During that time he also developed a deep emotional bond with the Polish pianist Maria Agata Szymanowska.
So maybe the pianist has something to do with it wink...

Perhaps he was very keen on salt.
Sculpted from salt... amazing!
