We got off the tram by the C & A yesterday and walked to Starbucks at Stary Bowar. As soon as we came to the statue of Old Marych, we both noticed the afghan was gone. Then we became aware of the faint burnt smell and the black ashes around the bottom of the statue. My first reaction was one of shock. Had vandals done this? After thinking about it for a few minutes, I suspect this was part of the artist’s plan. It certainly makes more of a statement than letting it sit in the elements for months, slowing rotting away. We are, after all, talking about it twice rather than just once.
