visited in the spring of 1999 with Jaan and Yuri, I found out something very important:
On enemmän julkisia penis kuin Prahassa tai Pariisissa.
There are more public penises than in Prague or Paris.
1. Start with Helsinki, where there are about 400 monuments, statues, and works of public art. The most famous is The Three Smiths, by Felix Nylund, a statue of three naked smiths hammering on an anvil, in Three Smiths Square in the heart of Helsinki. It's customary to tell people, "Meet me at the three naked guys."
More after the break
Then there's "The Fighter," "The Wounded Athlete," and...well, you get the general idea.
11. Or the monument to Aleksis Kivi, author of the homoerotic novel Seven Brothers, who was apparently allergic to clothes.
And we haven't even gotten to Turku.
See also: the Forest of Gay Dreams in Parikkala, a park devoted to muscular male nudes in Oslo, and an Icelandic museum dedicated to the penis.
