Long Description:
A bronze installation by artist Jakov Brdar inspired by a piece by writer R M Rilke, on Kljucavnicarska ulica (Locksmith Street), Ljubljana.

Faces, by R M Rilke
“To think, for instance, that I have never been aware before how many faces there are. There are quantities of human beings, but there are many more faces, for each person has several. There are people who wear the same face for years; naturally it wears out, it gets dirty, it splits at the folds, it stretches, like gloves one has worn on a journey. These are thrifty, simple people; they do not change their face, they never even have it cleaned. It is good enough, they say, and who can prove to them the contrary? The question of course arises, since they have several faces, what do they do with the others? Thhey store them up. Their children will wear them. But sometimes, too, it happens that their dogs go out with them on. And why not? A face is a face.”

"By installing a drinking fountain, the Slovenian sculptor Jakov Brdar has finished his work of art "Faces", which was donated to the city of Ljubljana by Medis.

Sculpture has 700 bronze castings of different faces extending along the narrow Kljucavnicarska (The Locksmith) Street in the medieval part of the town, connecting Cankarjevo nabrežje (Cankar Quay) with the Mestni trg (Town Square).

You are invited to take a look and refresh with cold, fresh Ljubljana water!"
