Posankka, statue

Visitors arriving in Turku from Helsinki are greeted by this gigantic statue outside the spa hotel Sokos Hotel Caribia. Guarding the gates of Turku since 1999, Posankka is the creation of artist Alvar Gullichsen. The love child of a marzipan pig and rubber duck is seven metres high. Of course, this makes putting on hats — a student cap on May Day and elf cap at Christmas — a bit challenging, but you just have to have a cap, now don't you?
