Geocache Description:


Akmens krokodils ir veltījums Dundagas austrālieša Arvīda Blūmentāla piemiņai.

Arvīds Blūmentāls (dzimis 1925. gada 19. martā, miris 2006. gadā), pazīstams kā Krokodilu Harijs, bija latviešu izcelsmes Austrālijas pētnieks un krokodilu mednieks. 1942. gadā iestājās 25. Abavas bataljonā, devies uz Austrumu fronti. 1944. un 1945. gadā ticis smagi ievainots. Nokļuvis gūstā pie amerikāņiem pēc izbēgšanas no gūsta padomju zonā Vācijā. 1951. gadā pārcēlies uz dzīvi Austrālijā. 1956. gadā Ziemeļkvīnslendā sācis medīt un pētīt. Viņa piedzīvojumi un pārdomas tikušas izklāstītas grāmatās "Latvietis krokodilu mednieks Austrālijā" (1957) un "Ilgas pēc saules" (1958), kā arī "Nacionālais dēkainis - krokodilu mednieks" (2010). Dzīves laikā nomedījis apmēram 40 000 krokodilu. Blūmentāla no vaska darinātā figūra atrodama Tiso kundzes Vaska figūru muzejā Londonā, Apvienotajā Karalistē. Par viņa dzīvi ir tikušas uzņemtas apmēram 20 dokumentālās filmas.

Tiek uzskatīts, ka Blūmentāls bijis prototips Krokodilam Dandijam, kas bija galvenais tēls trīs filmās: "Krokodils Dandijs" ("Crocodile" Dundee), "Krokodils Dandijs 2" ("Crocodile" Dundee II) un "Krokodils Dandijs Losandželosā" (Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles). Pēc citiem uzskatiem, Krokodila Dandija prototips bijis Rodnijs Ansels (Rodney William Ansell).

Stone crocodile is a dedication to the memory of Arvids Blumentals in Dundaga.

Arvids Blumentals (born March 19, 1925, died in 2006), known as Crocodile Harry, was an Australian researcher and crocodile hunter of Latvian origin. In 1942, he joined the 25th Abavas Battalion, went to the Eastern Front. In 1944 and 1945, he was seriously injured. He was captured by the Americans after escaping from captivity in the Soviet area of ​​Germany. In 1951, he moved to Australia. In 1956, he began hunting and exploring in the North Queensland. His adventures and reflections were described in the books "Latvian Crocodile Hunter in Australia" (1957) and "Long after the Sun" (1958), as well as "National Adventurer - Crocodile Hunter" (2010). During his lifetime, he hunted about 40,000 crocodiles. Blumental made from a wax figure can be found at the Wax Museum of Madame Tussauds in London, UK. Approximately 20 documentaries have been taken about his life.

Blumenthal is believed to have been the prototype for Crocodile Dandy, who was the main character in three films: Crocodile Dundee, Crocodile Dundee II, and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles. Although according to other views, Rodney William Ansell was the prototype of Crocodile Dundee.
