Perspective on the street - A Dwarfs wisdom Nov 08, 2014
They are around Wroclaw, Poland, here and there, and show up when you least expect them. In explanation I can only say they are Dwarfs and have a world of culture to their own kind. Go about the city and seek them out, by design or 'accident' and discover the stories they can tell. You may find you have something to learn from them. They can be elusive, but always hiding in plain sight. Perhaps some can see them and some can not, and it is a perspective that makes a difference. I caught a number of photos of them in their 'statue' pose.

The Dwarf's are not real, of course, or are they? They appear as statues in various poses, guises, and activities, but in more fundamental ways reflect humanity itself. Humans have great philosophers and I am sure Dwarfs have their great philosophers too. One can only imagine what the Dwarfs think of us humans. They display many of the same faults, so perhaps we have a lot in common. Maybe one day the Dwarfs and Humans will come together and find solutions for all troubles. The Dwarfs of Wroclaw are a beginning, a reaching out, and perhaps saying we are 'human' too.

A fun activity to indulge in when touring around Wroclaw, keeping some awareness of the Dwarfs and getting a bit of a thrill when spotting them. The firemen Dwarfs is a good one, like it too.

A very nice collection of photos of Wroclaw's little friends - I particularly like the fireman and his mate holding the ladders :))

I understand there is a September Festival of Dwarfs every year in Wroclaw for feasts and festivities and a time when the whole Dwarf community comes to life.
