I took this photo while my daughter and I were shopping in Bratislava, Slovakia. The bronze sculpture is called Čumil which translates into "the watcher". Located at the junction of Laurinská and Panská Streets in the old town district, it is one of the most photographed statues in the city. It was installed in 1997 as part of an effort to spice up the look and feel of the area which was traditionally marked with drab Communist-era architecture and decoration. It is apparently up to the viewer to decide whether this guy is simply resting, heading down to clean the sewer, or just looking up women's skirts.
