One thing about blogging is that you learn stuff. Not just you, but me, too. I had no clue who this statue was dedicated to, so I googled. (Remember the old days when you had to ask around?) It is a statue of the Serbian poet, Rasha Popov, who passed away in 2017. He apparently frequently walked around with an umbrella (imagine only when raining....a hat, and a book.
If you google him, you'll see the statue is a good likeness.
