Moving With The Times

In the city of Sofia, Bulgaria, an unidentified artist has transformed the official fiction of the town by giving the Red Army heroes a paint job. According to the UK Daily Mail, "The giant monument was built to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Russian 'liberation' of Bulgaria in 1944. It is regarded as the prime example of the forceful socialist-realism of the period."

That caption below the piece reads, "Moving with the times."
