Not Russia, but not too far away
The Market Square, Krakow
The enigmatic head graces the square
The plaque reads: Igor Mitoraj
Eros Bendato Braz 1999
Dar Artysty Dla Miasta Krakowa 2005 (Given by artist to Krakow in 2005)
I don’t speak Polish, but this looks more like Latin and seems to mean Bound Eros.
This is an intriguing sculpture in the western corner of the main market square (the Rynek Glowny) of Krakow, Poland: a huge hollow bronze head, laying on its side, and bound with 2 strips of bronze tape. Visitors are fascinated and stop to look, touch it, and take photos on it or next to it. It’s certainly an unusual modern touch in the old square with its gorgeous medieval buildings. People refer to it as “The Head” but its official name is Eros Bendato, and is the work of Polish artist Igor Mitoraj (born 1944 in Germany).
Good one Apres, you're up
I can't remember arches like that but the buildings remind me of Obidos in Portugal.
Sorry, had to edit this, it's not Europe......not concentrating!

Chefchaouen City Morocco?
Drove right past it heading south on the way the Meknes. Looks great!!!!

That would be The Mongolian in La Place du Pantheon.
That would indeed be it. Once you've seen it it's hard to forget
Time for a hint.....not Europe or Asia
Yep, I'm with Froff...................looks Mexican?
Looks very colourful in the background, so googled "mexico's most colourful towns".
No. 1 in Mexico's top 10 is Guanajuato?
Someone else can jump in with a pic to keep it going as I won't be able to post anything till tonight at this stage.
