In a city which embraces art in all forms this really tickled me. He looks so happy poking out of the ground. We even found a Christmas bauble with his image on so will remember him every year.

Nice statue in the middle of old town. Plenty of tourists taking pictures at this spot. Surrounded by lots of eateries and ice cream parlours.

You will not see it anywhere else. In the old part of the city be careful not to stumble on Cumil. Always crowded by tourists who want to take a picture with this unusual statue.

This "man at work" does not work: I observed him for several minutes, and it is only work is being photographed... Which is the meaning of these street statues?
