Weekly Travel Theme: Sculpture

This week’s Travel Theme set by Ailsa over at Where’s my Backpack is ‘Sculpture‘. I’ve suddenly remembered an image I took in Bucovina, Romania, some years ago. The image was taken in the northern eastern part of Romania, close to the Ukraine border. It is a gigantic hand in the middle of nowhere, high up in the mountain landscape. I believe that it is a monument to the workers who constructed the mountain road that goes through this region (see second image).

Whatever, it’s an impressive sculpture, and an impressive size Sadly, I ditched the image with people in, so you get no idea of size from this image, but a man would only come to the base of the hand if he stood in front of the sculpture.

Take a stroll over to Ailsa’s blog for some more sculptures!



  1. Leave it to the Romanians, I guess.

  2. That road seems to wind through some fabulous landscape! The sculpture sounds huge. I too have realised rather belatedly, the relevance of people in a picture to give an idea of scale.

    • But we don’t always want people in our images! Perhaps the answer, in the digital age when we don’t need to be concerned with the number of images we shoot, is to take some with and some without people! 🙂

Over to you...
