International Miners Day
Happy International Miners Day!
Around the world, many miners celebrate December 4 as Miners Day and commemorate their patron saint, St. Barbara, requesting her continuing protection for their daily work.
The sculpture in the photograph below is a tribute to miners, from the first prospectors and old-timers with picks and axes up to modern-day miners with sophisticated equipment. The sculpture is two-sided, the back representing the past with two historic miners looking forward to the front of the monument, depicting the present and future of mining.
