About
The sculpture, situated in front of the SPA Hotel Meri was created in 2002 by a renowned Estonian sculptor Tauno Kangro. The sculpture depicts Suur Toll (the Great Toll), a mythical hero of the island Saaremaa, and his wife Piret.Good to know:According to the Legend, Sorve peninsula was important to Toll, as from there he reached the shortest way to the island Ruhnu, where he had his cabbage field. When his wife Piret started to make a fire under the cauldron, then Toll went through the sea to his cabbage field and came back in half an hour, so that he could hand Piret the cabbages when the water had just started to boil.

Estonian artist and legend in nice area for a walk. Looks like they have quiet a haul of fish and seafood from the sea, not sure what the legend exactly tells, but lovely area and nice place to walk or run.

OMG I LOVED this statue!

The story of the first couple to settle in Saremaa is so cute and the statue is beautiful. It is one of my favorites next in line to statues in Budapest and MAdrid respectively.

Interesting Tale !
Jan 2020 • Couples
Nice spot for an evening stroll in Kurressare, and why not enjoy it with a mythical tale of the area.
The sculpture depicts Suur Tõll , a mythical hero of the island Saaremaa, and his wife Piret.
According to the Legend, Sõrve peninsula was important to Tõll, as from there he reached the shortest way to the island Ruhnu, where he had his cabbage field. When his wife Piret started to make a fire under the cauldron, then Tõll went through the sea to his cabbage field and came back in half an hour, so that he could hand Piret the cabbages when the water had just started to boil.

Decent, fun sculpture, but nothing else around and only worth about ten minutes of your time. It's not far from the castle and park though.

A fun statue
Aug 2019 • Couples
A fun piece of art related to the estonian folk lore. Don't go there with a serious mind, just enjoy the silliness and cheerfulness of the statue.

Pointless spot

The sculpture.
Dec 2018 • Couples
We spent here only 5 minutes because there was pretty nothing to see. We were here on December so maybe in summer here is different, better view.

Nice Beach
Nov 2018 • Couples
Beach is fine but composition and workout of this sculpture is terrible. The sculptor must find time to explore woman body and boats more carefully.
