TALLINN, ESTONIA STREET ART: KALEVIPOEG by OLIVIER BONNARD

Long story short: Kalev is a mythical character in Estonian folklore. Heโ€™s a malevolent giant who throws stones and planks at his enemies. He went to save his mother in Finland ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ, bought a sword ๐Ÿ—ก, but it was cursed because he killed the sword makerโ€™s son. Then when he used the sword, he cut his own legs off. He dies and goes to heaven, but then is reanimated by an enemy and made to guard the gates of hell for eternity. I told you, long story short. Guaranteed to have missed some major points. But, you get the gist. A mythical giant in Estonian folklore. ๐Ÿ’ฅ Artist: Lebonar a.k.a. Olivier Bonnard https://www.instagram.com/lebonar/?hl=en

Alexander’s Church (Estonian: Aleksandri Suurkirik) is a church of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church in Narva, Estonia. Narva Church’s original cornerstone was laid in summer 1881. It was congregated after Emperor Alexander II in fall 1883, after his assassination earlier in spring. Alexander ll was the Emperor of Russia, King of Congress Poland and Grand Duke of Finland from 2 March 1855 until his assassination. His most significant reform as emperor was emancipation of Russia’s serfs in 1861, for which he is known as Alexander the Liberator. The church was consecrated on 9 June 1884. It was given cathedral status on 19 September 2000. (notes from wiki)
I find old wooden buildings in old Soviet republics so striking because it makes you think in awe of how they survived wars and occupations. Or did they? Maybe they came to be after those times. But, it doesnโ€™t look like it.
Panoramic view. Narva is a quiet town. There are many opportunities to get โ€˜people-lessโ€™ shots.

Artist unknown but if I had to guess, maybe itโ€™s Deniss Girenko? Based on yesterdayโ€™s โ€œ78 Menโ€ postโ€ฆthe styles look similar. I donโ€™t know why this piece is protected with plexiglass. Unless, this is Narvaโ€™s equivalent to Banksyโ€ฆ?
