Who would think that Piran is such an arty town? This is the fifth post from it for our beloved public art challenge and two more are waiting to be posted. Today we look into and around the tiny lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula.
It’s true that you need to a pay a little something to climb the lighthouse, so what it is in there is not exactly public art, but the sculpted rocks around it that are free to visit make up for it.
We start with some photos of the lighthouse from afar, including two of temporary statues that are no longer there. There are two because one is a he and one is a she. Mean tongues say that of course the one with the open beak is a she.
Only recently has the lighthouse been opened to the public and it was only this September that I climbed it for the first time with my two visitors from Oregon.
All these years the rocks that separate the sea form the lighthouse have been sculpted by various enthusiasts, and so I show a selection of these as well. As you can see, mom had special fun with a couple of them. True, that was six years ago, but how can she look younger than I am now?
