Father and Son' sculpture, Tartu

(110 reviews on the web)
Monument
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.
