Possibly the second most famous statue of the city's symbol. It was created by sculptor Ludwika Nitschowa and unveiled June 29, 1939. Her model was a 23-year-old poet and etnography student: Krystyna Krahelska, but allegedly Ludwika changed her face slightly because she didn't want Krystyna to feel intimidated.
