Tribute to Partisans.

The Partisans Horsemen Statue

The Partisans is a haunting sculpture of thin, tired horsemen riding worn-out horses. The Partisans was created by Polish sculptor, Andrzej Pitynski, as a tribute to guerrilla freedom fighters everywhere. Pitynski was born in 1947 to Polish parents who were partisans.
