Over the last years I have seen a growing number of dressed public statues, especially during winter. People seem to love putting mittens, scarves and caps on half naked bronze girls or completely naked swans. When I recently visited a hospital, even the  sculpture group in the entrance hall had been equipped with warming clothes.

    I NEVER SAW SUCH A THING? Somehow I think it is marketing at it’s finest!


  2. Oh, you didn’t? But I doubt this is a purely Swedish phenomenon? There are also knitters who decorate handrails in the city with colourful pieces of knitted material (which I find less interesting than the dressed statues.)


  3. Jag tycker det är för härligt alltså!! Ett alldeles utmärkt sätt att delta i kulturen på. 🙂


I'd love to hear your opinion!
