Just seen the time stamp, it's not for breakfast after all!

, many eggs so is it going to be an omelette of some kind?

it's not for breakfast after all!

Don`t worry about the times, it doesn`t matter if it`s breakfast or lunch, we are not orthodox. The setting and utensils are more important. E..g, what about those cans?

Cooking jajecznica for a kids pretend picnic/camping scenario? The frying pan is balanced on the tins of cat food.......is a pretend cat coming for lunch too? :D

I give up! I'm probably missing sth blindingly obvious, but I can't get it this time.

No, don`t give up, you just guessed perfectly correctly. :) Except that not only for kids but by kids, too. :) I must repeat it with the next set of kids.

On the right, ingredients for the beetroot juice.

not be a vodka shot either.

For galareta it's usually spirit vinegar.

Yes, Poland has no tradition of making tasty fruit vinegar.

Hey, how about a new riddle?

What`s going on? The date is important.

The Portuguese flag is upside down and no one cared to fix it before taking the photo.

Simply a nationalist microaggression against a very progressive, diverse, inclusive, tolerant and respectful EU country.

Oh, really? Funny.

Yes, definitely. :)

But that`s not what I wanted to ask about. :)

World Youth ( WTD ), which was last in Kraków?

Perfect.

Oooh somebody doesn't know his Catholic calendar very well :))

I'm thinking it's preparations of the closing ceremonies of the World Youth Day in Kraków. The date is right and I can see the flags over there on the left hand side, but I'm sure the thing the priest is holding is significant. Looks like he's about to sweep up but the broom handle is a bit short! Whatever he's at, he means business, striding purposefully..........

Nice to see you, too. :* :*

I've been looking through different threads and it seems the forum is getting more interesting than it used to be. :)

This thread is great and not that easy for me, either.

Wonderful supposition but, Atch, you forgot to add LOL afterwards. :):)

Corpus Christi?

Sorry, no. If stamped dates are mixed and misleading, I will tell you about it. If I don`t, it means they matter. Corpus Christi takes place from March to June the latest.

St Christopher's Day?

Sort of. But what exactly is happening?

Yes, but not with a broom, it is kropidło. :)

Where in southern Poland, Małopolska region, is this medieval castle and what`s its name?

Is it in Tarnów? Zamek w Dębnie?

Yes!

And that`s what you can see there. Namely what?

Oops, I didn`t even know it was him. I thought of something else - what kind of a portrait?
Chemikiem 6 | 2,113
20 Feb 2019 #2,003
Well it doesn't look like a trump d'oeil, and if you don't know whose portrait it is, then it can't be a self-portrait either, so in conclusion, I've got no idea at all!

what kind of a portrait?

Is it a funeral or coffin portrait? I saw a museum exhibition with them some years ago and it seems a bit similar....

My first answer was going to be that it was Vlad the Impaler's fail son, Ivan the Poker, known for the way he jabbed his index finger in people's chests when he was talking to them...

s it a funeral or coffin portrait?

Yes, Polish nobility loved to have their portraits painted on the coffins. Such a harmless hobby.

Read about it here:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffin_portrait

Who`s this?



Atch 17 | 2,915
21 Feb 2019 #2,006
I think it's Fr Maximilian Kolbe. The coffin portraits are not so bizarre, not that different to the English table tombs with the effigy of the deceased.
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
21 Feb 2019 #2,007
Yes, Kolbe.

What is it and where?
Clue: It is close to Kolbe monument.

Is it just kind of outisde and in back of the museum? I was with a group of schoolkids on a field trip and we stopped there and it looks a bit familiar...

Does it have a series of figures that kind of come out of the wall and parade by? (or am I confusing it with somewhere around Licheń?)
OP pawian 161 | 9,971

No figures.
Clues - the object is in southern Poland/ connected with a famous pilgrimage site somewhere else in the world/ you can get "holy" water there.

I remember going to some site where apparently the Virgin Mary appeared. Forget if it was czestochowa or jasna gora. That pic looks familiar though I think I was there as a kid
