The photographs here show a copper bust of Osman Kazazi in the centre of Tirana, Albania. They were taken in October 2009 on the street Rruga Urani Pano. The bust was on a white column on which the following words in Albanian are visible in the second photograph.

OSMAN KAZAZI

In January 2022 there was very little about Osman Kazazi on the web in English. There was no English language Wikipedia page.

A bust on a white pillar about 2 metres high, with copper coloured stains and the following words in raised copper-coloured letters: “ OSMAN KAZAZI JA KUSHTOI  JETEN LIRISE DHE ATDHEUT ME RESPEKT TE MADH PER OSMAN KAZAZIN PAUL LUYF”. On each side of the pillar is a parked car facing the camera and behind is the wall of a building with reddish stone facade and ivy and the green spiky leaves of apparently a small conifer tree.
