Look at the head of this stone statue on my picture. Can you see many needles positioned there? Well, I am sure that it's not Chinese acupunture but either a kind of, unknown to me, technique of renovation, used by conservators of old stone figures or protection against birds (pigeons). I could see similar "needles" sticking out of old statues a few times in Gdansk, and I've never noticed them anywhere else before.
