Riga

Chimney Sweep statue

  At the corner of Matīsa and Mūrnieku     more than a year ago
Chimney sweeps are still held in the highest regard in Latvia and if you see one in his traditional 19th-century uniform on the streets it’s considered good luck to rub his brass buttons. A statue of a chimney sweep and a stone mason created by artists Kārlis Īle and Ģirts Burvis is located at the corner of Mātīsa and Mūrnieku streets and a couple of park benches are available if you want to take a load off while admiring the work of art.
