    E greu sa spui care e cea mai cea… asa ca nu mai spui, le privesti (si te duci sa le vizitezi, eventual) si gata…. :)

    • Lori says:

      Sigur ca e indicat sa mergi sa le vezi pe toate. Pe mine recunosc ca ma amuza cea cu poza politistului – zici ca i-au pus piedica lui Shelock Holmes. Imi mai place – pentru semnificatie – si cea cu muncitorul din bronz – si nasul cel frecat de zor pentru noroc ;).

      • Mirela says:

  5. Magga says:

    Sorry, but the statue in Stockholm isn’t a statue it’s a person swiming in the water between the royal palace, (the big brown building in the photo) and the Parliament Building, behind the photographer!

  6. Mirela says:

    Magga, I don`t think so… that is not a human face, I mean not a real one, and also the hand looks like it wants to show us a building or that bridge near… not to mention the dimensions of both pieces…. they are definitely objects of art, no doubt… : )
