A statue of Lenin in Odessa, Ukraine, that was scheduled for “decommunization” by president Petro Poroshenko has found new life as a monument to “Star Wars’” Darth Vader. Famous sculptor Alexander Milov, who’s previously been featured on Bored Panda, is unveiling the WiFi-enabled statue today at 11:00.
“The Bronze Lenin was left inside, so that the grateful or not so grateful descendants could exhume him, if needed,” Milov told the media. Asked to comment on the statue, a nearby factory’s warehouse manager waxed philosophical. “Everything glows, everything changes, old figures give wave to new ones, and so the world turns.”
