Some of them are pretty incredible. “In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.”

Michelangelo

Nice, France

The statue of Freud by Czech sculptor David Cerney has been seen hanging from flagpoles like an American flag in Grand Rapids, Chicago and New York City before going home to hang out in Prague.

After haha commented on this post I tried to find on Google the source for the pictures. You can find more strange statues on http://saoma.com/central/, a very interesting website.  I’m sorry for not trying to find it sooner. I didn’t “rip” them, I had them on the computer and just added them. As it is written in the about page, giving credit is a pleasure, and if it is asked it becomes more than that – an obligation. The pictures are not mine, I have never said they would be.

  10. About the twisted revolver:
    The famous statue “Non Violence” is at several locations around the world. To exexmpel outside the UN headquarters in New York, and in Stockholm . The gun was designed in the late 1980s by swedish Carl Fredrik Reutersvärd and in 1995 became the symbol of the anti-violence movement, “Non-violence”.

    Reuterswärd noted that it was the sorrow after the murder of his good friend John Lennon that got him to design this famous work.

  22. Can anyone help me finding where is the location of these strange statue?

    A man, with beard, a suitcase on his left hand. His body has disappeared (like erased with a rubber) from his chest to the knees and his right arm.

    This statue his near the sea.

    I have two photos.

    Thanks

  23. Funny how the UN “non-violence”, “anti-war” statue depicts a destroyed CIVILIAN SELF-DEFENSE weapon (revolvers haven’t been by most military forces for nearly a century.)
    Why not a twisted artillery piece, disabled land mine, or a broken H-bomb instead? You gotta wonder about the UN’S sincerity here. Are they really against war, OR are they just concerned that ordinary mortals (non-police, non-military) be kept “in their place” (in other words, disarmed?)

  24. @Brendan

    Have you ever heard about Thomas Hobbes and his famous way of thinking: “war is the natural state of man”? 😛

  25. @Alexandra Yeah, I’m familiar with Hobbes. (And speaking of war, I sometimes wonder if the mandarins at the UN consider independent citizenries “the enemy.”)

  26. As nothing is what it seems to be in this world… Ordinary people are not really the enemy as long they are easy to control. And you might be right, there are always bigger interests behind good deeds. 🙂

    As their motto says: “we are the peoples”… it remains to interpret what they really want to say.

    p.s. I hate politics 😀

  27. Antwerpen is fantastisch leuk als je de leukste locaties gaat bezoeken zoals de toeristische plekken.

  28. Dunno if its there, didn’t read the comments, but the big ball of things in the beginning is in Berlin.
