Sculpture of a gnome


Sculpture of a gnome


A small figurine of a smiling dwarf in a pointed hat, holding a coin pot in his right hand. Situated in the central point of the square on Mikołaja Kopernika Street, right next to the pedestrian and bicycle route.

Historical background

The history of the sculpture is unknown. It is estimated that the dwarf could have been placed by a ceramics trader, by a tourist, or Gubin's citizen sympathizing with the Eurocity.

Artwork review

The figurine is a compact, two-element free-standing structure in the proportions 1:3. It is possible that it refers to the trade of gypsum dwarfs, which is typical for German-Polish border towns. Its size and dark golden colors blend very well with the surroundings, giving this alleged symbolism a nice and sincere character.


Skwer Kopernika. 66-620 Gubin, Poland
