Vladimir Lenin statue gets Darth Vader makeover

25 Oct 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

A Vladimir Lenin statue has been transformed into Darth Vader.

There are still lots of statues left over from the Soviet days, but they’re slowly being taken down — or in this case, retrofitted into more inspirational figures from the capitalist mythos. But when the city moved to tear down the statue, local artist and Burning Man alumnus Alexander Milov stepped in with an alternative proposal, transforming Lenin’s billowing coattails into the billowing cape of Darth Vader himself. That’s what happened in Odessa, Ukraine, where local artist Alexander Milov managed to turn a statue of the Soviet leader into a post-surgery Anakin Skywalker. But instead of knocking this one down, Milov (a sculptor who also had a piece at Burning Man) encased Lenin in an alloy which is glued to the old statue.
