Well worth a quick look. We knew to look out for it on the way to the castle. Typical cast bronze statue, with a reasonable view from the road as well.

Big sculpture, but I failed to find information about the reason, why this monument was erected and what does ir mean. I assume it is monument in memory of grandfather of famous Rakvere sausages :)
