Five Organic Perils

Five Organic Perils

A statue made of five iron sculptures set on a concrete pedestal, which is a work by academic sculptor Marijan Mirt, was created in 2002.
The iron material was carefully selected, since by rusting it stresses dissolution, one of the organic processes. And thus from this arises the name Five organic perils.
