Ding Dong Dumb

  ul. Piwna 3A ,   Podgórze         more than a year ago
Perhaps Kraków's most impressive and controversial mural, painted by well-known Bolognese artist Blu in 2011. The mural's ironic intent is to take a jab at the relationship between Polish culture and the Catholic Church. Note that the megaphone/bell is in the colours of the Vatican and also features the crest of the Vatican. The fact that it is located in the area of the former Jewish Ghetto only makes it more thought-provoking. In front of the mural where ul. Piwna and ul. Józefińska meet is another interesting piece of public art: a seesaw designed by Małgorzata Markiewicz and dedicated to Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz. Installed in 2012, the inscription reads 'For Gombrowicz From His Compatriots.'
