Saturday Statues

I walk past this statue almost every day in Helsinki. I have been wondering about it for quite some time and now decided it was time for some research and start a new challenge called Saturday Statues in the process! I hope you join me for this one.

My first Saturday Statues post is of a mare and her foal. This statue is from 1928 and it’s by Emil Cedercreutz. It’s fittingly called Motherly Love (Äidinrakkaus). The statue can be found in a tiny park, just across the road on the Kruununhaka side of the larger Kaisaniemi park. I would say that it’s one of the most adorable statues in Helsinki.

Saturday Statues is a weekly feature where bloggers from around the world can share the interesting statues they have stumbled upon. Please join me by sharing your own Saturday Statues post via the link-up button. Make sure you share the exact post, not your homepage! The linkup is open from Saturday morning to Monday evening Central European Time. If you share your posts on Twitter and Instagram remember to use the #saturdaystatues hashtag! It would also be a nice touch to visit some of the posts shared by others.

I find myself more drawn to lifelike statues instead of abstract ones. I am also a huge fan of Soviet statues, as you may know. What kind of statues or sculptures do you like looking at? I am excited to see your posts soon!
