The salt mine in Wieliczka, Poland is full of wonders, both natural and human-made. Some of them are art just decorating the place, with a bit of a history lesson. This is one of those – a statue of a historical miner who used to work in this very mine, carrying a candle and a rope on which a barrel is dragged. It lets you learn how the work underground used to look before more advanced technology was introduced. photofree exgif stockphoto
