Father and Son' sculpture, Tartu

(2.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Though originally intended to be placed in Tallinn, Tartu's Father and Son' sculpture has come to serve as one of the city's most well-known pieces of public artwork. Cast in bronze by a grieving widow in 1987, the statue was purchased by the local city council in 2001 to preserve it. Visit the unusual sculpture, which depicts a toddler-aged son hand-in-hand with his father. You'll notice immediately that the child's dimensions are equal to those of his parent, creating a disorienting effect. Be sure to bring your camera, as many find posing next to a man-sized child to be a great photo opportunity. Put Father and Son' sculpture on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Tartu tourist route planner.
