5 Most Ugliest Monuments In The World

Modern sculptors adorn the city is very strange creatures whose meaning completely incomprehensible townsfolk, and artistic merit raise many questions. Today, we have selected the ten most ugly monuments of the world.

Monument to Abbot Faria
Goa, India
Abbe Faria remember sitting in prison with the future Count of Monte Cristo? This man – not the imagination of Alexandre Dumas. He was a descendant of Indian priests, and in fact first introduced to Europe from the hypnosis. Jose Custodio de Faria was born in Goa, with 15 years living in Europe, took part in the French Revolution, advocated the liberation of Goa. Being 17 years in prison in the Chateau d’If, he practiced yoga. When released from prison (and not dead, as in the novel!), Engaged in healing and hypnosis. At home honored the memory of compatriot and in 1945 he found it awkward monument, which depicts Faria at the time of the hypnotic effect on the patient. Metronome New York, U.S. It turns out that this strange design should evoke images of a metronome: seven digits to the left shows the real time and seven digits to the right report, so many hours left to live before the end of the day. From the hole in the center of flowing stream of steam, noon and midnight, marked his powerful release. Under the gold leaf fragment of rock on which was erected Manhattan – this boulder is a symbol of geological time. The authors of this “art”, created in 1999, tried to say that the time may be considered differently, that it is, in general, with respect, and remind him of transience.

A statue of Michael Jackson’s
London, UK
Londoners are still wondering why the owner of Fulham Football Club, Mohamed Al-Fayed (father of a friend of Princess Diana – Dodi) has ordered such a terrible statue of his friend Michael Jackson and even placed it near the stadium (despite the fact that the singer had never football is not fond of). Sculptor captures a celebrity, dressed in black pants and a silver jacket, one hand in a glove Jackson and the other he holds a microphone. At the opening of this masterpiece Al-Fayed said that all those who do not like it, can “go to hell.”

Monument to Peter the Great
, Moscow, Russia
When not called him this gigantic figure appeared on the waterfront of Peter Muscovites, no matter how much discussed rumors that actually created the Columbus Zurab Tsereteli, but could not find anyone to sell it and make up it under the Russian emperor, and may say that it is an urgent need to dismantle, but in the end no one dared to rid our city of the terrible creatures of the Georgian sculptor. It turned out that the cost of removal is incredibly high, and cheaper to live with this eyesore.

Seoul, South Korea
This strange metal structure, vaguely reminiscent of a rose, rolled from the warped the airframe, located in Seoul at the headquarters of a major steel company. Its creator – a famous sculptor and designer, Frank Stella, named it in honor of his friend’s daughter, who died in a plane crash. The townspeople wanted to move the creepy creature in a museum, but realized that it would cost quite expensive, and then tried to hide it with a small group of trees.

“Pee Men”
Prague, Czech Republic
Subject Brussels Manneken Pis is haunted by modern sculptors. So, David Cerny has created an unusual fountain for Prague: two men, more than a couple feet tall, selflessly urinate in the pool, resembling the Czech Republic. But unlike the Belgian baby modern art high-tech: you can send an SMS to a special number, and the two representatives of the stronger sex naked … “write” anything you want.
