Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos announced that he donates his April salary for the public subscription to buy Constantin Brancusi’s sculpture ‘Wisdom of the Earth’.
“I urge every one of you to do as your conscience dictates and in accordance with your possibilities. I have decided to do it because Brancusi is mine, too!” Ciolos said in a video message on is Facebook page on Sunday.
The public subscription officially started on 19 May should garner six million euros, and the Government adds five millions to buy Brancusi’s ‘Wisdom of the Earth’ from its legal owners. The work was evaluated to 11 million euros, and the Romanian state has a preemption right on it.
