  9. Zafarad says:

    I like all soviet era monuments and sculptures like this “star sewer” ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  10. zxc says:

    this monument is not of soviet era. it was built in 1940, before the soviet era.

  11. Alex says:

    The sculpture surely wasn’t ment to be that way in night time (as there were no lights directed at it when it was placed there). Some creative guys just figured out how to make it cooler in night time.

  12. Arnas says:

    This is actually a sculpture of a book smuggler (it should have a prettier name, but I guess I just don’t know it).

  13. Banana man says:

    Arnas, this is not book smuggler. Book smuggler is next to this statue. And this statute was raised in 1939

  14. Kometya says:

    Quite creative

    That woman was raking leaves, but all she did is rake them into the curb corner. She should be fired. And then shot. And then fired again.

    Sculpture is here

    right in the middle. It has nothing to do neither with Russia nor with english, it is not in Russia and wasn’t built in soviet times, actually it is in EU now. Seems appeared here only following dirty russian ambitions to conquer as much teritory as possible, murdering all nations around.

    it WOULD make sense in the daytime if photographed from the same angle as the night picture…

  26. KevinIzAZN says:

    i think banksy did that

  27. azsdasd says:

    Thats not phoposhop, the sculpture is in lithuania, kaunas.
    it was built in 1939, and that wasn’t soviet period. :)

    • Linas Lituanus says:

      Yes, it was built before WW2, when Lithuania stil wasn’t annexed to the USSR. The sculptor is Bernardas Bučas, and name of it is just The Sower without any stars mentioned. The stars pictured on the wall are modern innovation and this picture seems to be inofficial, so that one day it can disappear as the tolerance of city officials ends. – Nevertheless the stars add some more mystics to that sculpture, making it more attractive.

  28. asd says:

    Now they ruined it, by covering the stars..
