"La pittura è una poesia che si vede e non si sente, e la poesia è una pittura che si sente e non si vede."
Malarstwo jest poezją, którą się widzi a nie słyszy, poezja jest malarstwem, które się słyszy a nie widzi"
"Painting is poetry which is seen and not heard, and poetry is a painting which is heard but not seen"
Leonardo da Vinci: Trattato della Pittura (XVI secolo) Parte prima, 16. Differenza che ha la pittura con la poesia

The facts of life.
They are subjects that should get the crowds flocking to oudoor lessons. Actually, the facts of life taught at the University Square in Wroclaw, Poland,  have nothing to do with sex education as Polish pupils get all necessary knowledge in 'Life in the Family' classes based on the medical ethic's first rule 'PRIMUM NON NOCERE' [First, do no harm]. So far, children in Poland are spared from victimization by insane ideologies.

The lesson outside the building of University of Wroclaw, is about the statue of the Naked Fencer by Hugo Lederer. It was erected in the beginning of the 20th century to represent a drunk gambler who had lost everything to gambling except for his sword. It is supposed to serve as a warning to students who booze and gamble.
The lesson outside  the building of University of Wroclaw, is about the statue of the naked fencer by Hugo Lederer. It was erected in the beginning of the 20th century to represent a drunk gambler who had lost everything to gambling except for his sword. It is supposed to serve as a warning to students who booze and gamble. Hugo Lederer, 25 years old, came to Wroclaw to study under sculptor Christian Behrens. As he walked out one evening, he met a couple of students in Market Square and joined them for a pint at Piwnica Swidnicka (the oldest restaurant in Europe, established AD 1273). Hugo had given them the impression that he was rich by the way he was dressed and by brandishing a sword. The poor students used the situation to drink on his expense. After midnight, they bought a jug of beer and moved to a room rented by one of the students. They gambled and played cards all night until Hugo was left with nothing but his clothes and sword. In an attempt to win back what he lost, he bet all the clothes off his back, but lost again. Furious and embarrassed, he left the room with nothing but his sword and promised not to gamble again. Years passed and Hugo became a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts and made this fencer statue with a fencing foil to warn young students about gambling and the dangers of starting a new life in Wroclaw.

There's a contemporary urban legend about the Fencer Fountain, too. It addresses some other risks than boozing and gambling, as well as highlights the value of preserving virginity until marriage. The Naked Fencer of the 21st century who was a heavy consumer of internet pornography finally finds no stimulus strong enough to become a sexual stimulant for him. Look at the poor guy's shortened sword, a visible proof of hurtful vandalism. For the Naked Fencer, the one and only hope not to end childless and abandoned by selfish society is to encounter a virgin who would marry him and mother his kids. This is why he can't keep his eyes off the fountain's bowl. He's expecting to spot a reflexion of his fiancée's face memorised by the water there. Some not-yet-married virgin women come to the fountain, while most of them fantasize about coming, to bend over the water and in a dream get a marriage proposal from the Naked Fencer. But he's got many competitors who are more attractive than he is. And not crippled by watching pornography. The best one of smart, handsome, and funny bachelors, preferably virgin too, if accepted, will take his virgin bride to the altar. Two young men in the photo above who're standing at the fountain and staring at the water exemplify wise choices of post-porn generation. All but the least mature become fed up with nakedness. NB. In the Roman Catholic Church the groom, not the father brings the bride to the altar. At the present times, there's nothing like 'give away the bride custom' in Poland.  Giving away the bride is an antiquated tradition from the days when women were their father's property until they got married and became their husband's property. The bride was literally given away in exchange for a bride price or dowry. Today, fortunately, most people don't view women this way.
