This weekly post compiles short photos, moments, that do not have the length of a full blog article. The post is updated during the week as the moments arrive.
When the statue was uncovered a few years back (2019) it caused bit of fuss in the media, but I won't go into that in this post.
I happened to walk by, when a person who had been a part of the the statue-placement project was admiring the statue. in an ensuing conversation, I had to ask was the equine a donkey or a mule, as the ears were too large for a horse. He told me that indeed they were oversized, but that the metaphorical animal symbolized that the families had none, but farm- and household animals to listen to their sorrows when the men were at war front.
As can be seen from the numerous photos, the lake Vanaja is a usually a very calm one, perfect for casual lakeside kayaking.
