PKO BP Bank.

Persistence pays off! To think you were going to give up that easily too! I think you like setting these riddles more than solving them ;)

I still think about the 2 riddles that bug me most that I couldn't answer. The Black Madonna made out of something natural, and the artist that uses those triangular shapes in his paintings.

In the meantime, another clock tower! Surprise surprise! Where is this one?

I will tell you about Black Madonna through a set of 4 pics I took this year.

As for the artist and triangular shapes, you must remind me which post he was in. I am really tired - came back home after 10pm.

As for the clock tower, I must give up. Sorry.

Yes, indeed. I wouldn`t guess it coz I am used to front views of the Town Hall in Zamośc. :):)

front views

Now that really would have been a giveaway!

Nope. They are butterfly wings and they show those pics each year at the Insect Days in Krakow.

The artist is Tadeusz Makowski. Quite costly today.

They are butterfly wings

Aha! In a million years I wouldn't have got that. I wonder how many wings were used........ I presume the same artist did all 4 pics?

Tadeusz Makowski.

Just googled his work, he produced loads of paintings with those distinctive triangles!

Thanks for putting me in the picture at last!

@ Chemikiem. Is there a connection to the death camps ?

Recalling your itenerary in Poland, you must have visited the death/concentration camp in Lublin: Majdanek. This is an installation called Shrine to commemorate all Nameless Victims of the camp. Philip`s suggestion was useful.

Congrats to both of you! Philip was right in his assumption, and yes, that installation is in Majdanek. My riddles are too easy!

They claim no living butterfly was harmed in the process of artistic creation.

There wasn`t the creator`s name under the pictures. I wonder if they were made by uni students (the Insect Days are held at the Agricultural University).

My riddles are too easy!

No. Easy would mean we guess instantly. But your latest riddles made me think hard.

I should hope not!!

Easy would mean we guess instantly.

Most of mine have been guessed pretty quickly, as I'm sure this new one will.

Where can these be found?
