Witelon in Legnica

Vitello Thuringopolonis, also known as Erazm Ciołek, was a thirteenth-century thinker who left behind several treatises on philosophy, but also optics, astronomy, meteorology and even demonology. He was especially interested in the theory of seeing, and with his claims he laid the foundations for the psychology of perception. The monk in the mural holds a prism in his hand, which splits the light, as if symbolically “illuminating” the audience. The multi-meter-long figure reminds the inhabitants of Legnica of the illustrious figure of Witelon, whose name is, for example, named after the local branch of the State Higher Vocational School.
