To Freedom and Independence

Mateusz Naworol's avatar Mateusz Naworol

Poland, located in the heart of Europe, has had a long and rich history. Over the last thousand years the country has defended its freedom and sovereignty from foreign aggressors numerous times. Polish history is marked with great wars and uprisings mainly due to country's location between East and West. There was a time when Poland was the largest country in Europe but there was also a stage when it was totally erased from the world map for over a hundred years. Thanks to the resilience and pride of the people who value freedom above all, Poland has not only managed to regain its independence and glory, but keeping its values and rich tradition continues to help shape Europe's history. In the sculpture, The White Eagle (Orzeł Biały), a symbol of Poland and its people, raises back to freedom from its three oppressors gaining back its Glory and Independence.
