Croatian miscellany #4

Statue of the Croatian poet Antun Gustav Matos by Ivan Kozaric, Zagreb, April 2009

Zagreb has some wonderful outdoor sculpture, and this one of Matos is probably the best-known, with people regularly turning up to have their photograph taken here, or to just sit on the bench with him. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who’s keeping whom company (this wasn’t posed, and there was no one else there). If you’re interested, you can read an article I wrote on Zagreb’s outdoor sculpture for hidden europe a while ago here: hidden_europe_28_zagreb.

Does it mean that she was all alone there, just leaning to the sculpture, perhaps for getting some inspiration?

Nice – it’s great that this wasn’t a posed photo – right place, right time.

Thanks for sharing.
