Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The statue of Bishop Grgur Ninski is located at the Golden Gate of Diocletian's Palace in the Croatian port of Split. The statue is 8.5 m high and its author is the Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović.
The bishop, with his uncompromising attitude toward the pope in 925, helped to make Croatian used as a language at Mass instead of Latin.
One interesting thing - as in many other places, is superstition. When you touch to the thumb on the bishop's leg (it is polished by constant touches), then you return to Split. I don't believe in superstitions, but in this case it works. Every time I visit this beautiful city, I reached for the bishop's thumb. Last time I didn't do it with the feeling that it was nonsense ... and I haven't been to Split since.

Interesting story about superstitions..either you touch the statue or not, go to Split. It is a beautiful place.

Val, I completely understand you, in the full season, taking care of the garden is very demanding and takes a lot of time. Thank you for taking a moment and writing to me, I really appreciate it. Just be careful, you and Jim, hot summer days and a lot of effort are not a good combination ♥:))
