Frolicking Fauns

The three Fauns are dancing on a fountain in Gliwice, Poland. Created in 1928 and affectionately called “the devils”, they are the favorite meeting place in the town.

One theory of their origin states that each Faun represents a mayor of one of the three neighbor towns Gliwice, Zabrze, and Bytom. Since they could not agree to connect their respective cities into one, they are doomed to forever “dance around the idea”.

I am also adding my post to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Fun or Flowers, since my Fauns are definitely having fun 🙂 And here is a link to my sister’s blog where the Fauns are really having fun!
