Dress the monuments!

Yarnbombing is fun – that’s a fact. Sculptures in the cities – are not always fun, and this is also a fact which I pointed out some time. And they are grey, and sad. Well, not all of them, but the “serious” ones surely do not brighten up your day.

Well, these ones do. Some clever, gifted and hard-working people decided to “dress” some monuments – some of them of well-recognized people, others in well-known locations, and some that just turned inspiring for the artist. The results are pure joy, outburst of colour and creativity. And even old Lenin looks brighter with his fancy, red (what other colour could it be?) gloves.
