7 A Bus Stop As A Piece Of Art

A Bus Stop As A Piece Of Art

Posted on January 19, 2011 by team


The bus stops that were built in Soviet times are not just some practical constructions. Some people consider them to be a piece of art. Most of these little masterpieces were created using mosaic technique. Naturally, this art couldn’t be developed in churches or any religious places during the Soviet epoch, so it was expressed in a different way. Most of those are created using actual coloured stones.

    Loveley mosaics, they remind me of the old times here in former Czechoslovakia.

    I saw quite a few of those in rural areas of Moldova five or six years ago. I liked the mosaics of men and women engaged in farming activities or holding up handfuls or baskets of harvested crops or produce. The entire Moldovan countryside struck me as a beautiful but sad, melancholy place, and the chipped mosaics and faded, painted bus stops and signs just added to the surrealism.
