Romania 2007 (10) 006

Wandering into Piata Mare I found a number of these boards. BCR is the Commercial Bank of Romania, who were obviously sponsoring this. If I remember correctly there were also a few artisan stalls as well as these large hoardings. This one in the foreground highlights the Hungarian connection (Sibiu is in Transylvania which used to be part of Hungary – Matei Corvin (Matyas Corvinus in Hungarian) is a famous Transylvanian king claimed by both Hungarians and Romanians). The board in the background showcases one of Romania’s most famous sons, the sculptor Constantin Brancusi and his famous “Endless Column” sculpture.
