Permyak - the Salty Ears, Perm

Monument
Give a nod to the salt miner's toils at Permyak - the Salty Ears, an unusual memorial to these workers, whose ears became saturated with salt, turned red, and increased in size due to carrying bags of salt on their shoulders. This strange sculpture from 2006 features a figure of the photographer and a granite column crowned with an oval frame with large ears. Try the ears on, and pose for a photograph. Plan to see Permyak - the Salty Ears and other attractions that appeal to you using our Perm travel itinerary maker.

  • One of the most popular urban sculptures near perm there is always willing to be photographed in the manner of "permjaka salty ears". The fact of the matter is that opposite photographer installed Oval frame with bol'shushhimi bronze ears. From wanting to look into the frame and not get in the way. Successful interactive object, urban attraction. Praise sculptor-Rustam Ismagilovu.
