Hello. This is not by Brancusi, it appeared there in the eighties along with other "public art" favoured by Ceausescu's regime. They pretended to be fans of Brancusi, I remember they tried to include him in their nationalist propaganda as a "great Romanian", almost as great as Ceausescu himself. The man couldn't argue with them, being dead. Because most of his work was abroad, they had to commision this kind of art from their "official" artists
