Tightrope Walker Statue

Statue in Sopot

While ambling your way along Ulica Bohaterów Monte Cassino towards the sea, take a right into ul Bema to see one of the most unusual statues in Poland. An African fisherman carrying a net is suspended above the street on a tightrope, the piece of public art seeming to defy gravity. It's the work of Polish sculptor Jerzy Kedziora who specialises in these odd balancing spectacles.
