Vilnius, the home of the fictional Russian sub captain from "The Hunt for Red October", Marko Ramius, “The Vilnius Schoolmaster.”

What's he got there, a bird whistle?

One hundred years ago this week, the Bolsheviks took control of Vilnius and began massacring civilians for having supported the Polish militia. It was big news at the time.

The art is better in Ljubljana, Slovenia, “The Lovely City.”

I don't really care for giant public murals, but at least this one is better than the dozens of third-worldish, garish murals around Philadelphia.

Compare Vilnius and Ljubljana (my favorite east Europe city) with the "art" on Tirana buildings!

It's a racist dog whistle.

SDaly @1:50-- I agree, except for the one of Frank Rizzo, who actually deserves one. Assuming BLM hasn't arranged to have it painted over yet, I've not been down there for a while.

Explaining my Slovenian pun, the Slovenian word for love is "ljubezen."

It is big and it was a lot of work but I am not enthralled except for the enormous work to make such an incredibly ugly sized piece of what I suppose has to be termed 'art'.

FIDO said...

Mm! I got it. It is the artistic equivalent to the 'World's Largest Ball of Twine'. You got to appreciate the size, if nothing else...and there is nothing else to appreciate here.
