It's not in Lublin, it's in Rzeszów. Besides, it's worth mentioning that the monument is commonly known as (quote) The Monument of The Great C u n t (unquote)

Now, couple of examples from Warsaw

Monument of Soldiers of the Kosciuszko Division, commonly known as "Five beers, please" (1985)


Monument of Marshall Józef Piłsudski, commonly known as "The Car Park Uncle" (because the monument is surrounded by the car park and Marshall looks like a warden) (1995)


Monument of Cyryl - Independent Cat (2011)


Monument of Backyard Band from Praga (2006) [Praga = one of Warsaw's districts, Backyard Band = popular long time ago, amateur bands playing in the yards of rent houses - hence the name]

Let's leave the capital

Monument of the Glan, Jarocin [glan = steel-toed laced boot typical for most subcultures incl. punks, goths, metals, skins and so on]. The monument commemorates the Rock Festival in Jarocin. Built in 2011.


Monument of the Potato, Biesiekerz, IIRC 1980 or so. To commemorate the new variety of Potato, planted in Experimental Plantation of Potato in Biesiekierz. Probably the largest monument of the potato in the world



Wrocław's Dwarfs, Wrocław. It commemorate the funny way of mocking communists in Wrocław in 1980s by underground protests by Dwarfs (Orange Alternative led by Maj. Fydrych

One of 250...


Monument of the S h i t t i n g Guy, Świdnica, build ca 1935

The ideological background of the monument is unknown Not to mention that the S. Guy was sculptured during Nazi times in Schweidnitz (then Germany), under the regime which was very poor when it came to sense of humour Still, it is probably the only in Europe monument of a man with his pants down and - as it seems - during the specific action
