The sculpture of the naked blacksmiths stands in the little square on the corner of Mannerheimintie and Aleksanterinkatu in the centre of Helsinki. Rumour has it that if a virgin passes a hammer will hit the anvil.

The sculpture was created by Felix Nylund in 1932. It survived the bombing in the Continuation War.

I think it looks wonderful, day or night.
