Forty male and female characters carved out of lime trees from the Carpinthian Mountains on southeast Poland. Part of the Polish Season organized by the University of Hull Faculty of Arts and Social Science, placed on a plaza in the central campus. Unfortunate barricade around the installation, presumably to deter damaged, but the fences are distracting. (U. Hull, UK) 20121119 140459
