Pillar of shame

Pillar of shame

The only preserved pillar of shame in the shape of a human figure stands near the village Salež. The local population call it "Berlin", after the four-seat carriage known as berlina which once drove between Berlin and Paris and according to legend it was used to expose offenders to public derision. This pillar is made of white stone which cannot be found in the village and presents a human figure wearing a hat in the shape of a Turkish fez; his left arm, to which once shackles were attached for tying up prisoners, is on his chest, and his right arm is lowered, so his fist is between his legs.
