The Friday Photo #133 – Hollywood faces, Ljubljana

Hollywood faces, Ljubljana

I don’t make any claims of art expertise.

When wandering aimlessly around the little city of Ljubljana, I came across this display just outside the pedestrianised centre of the Slovenian capital.  Now I’m guessing that the faces are supposed to represent famous Hollywood actors, but really I’ve got no idea.

It was quirky and kinda cool, but for all I know, it could be members of the city council … or the local Rotary club.

Either way, I liked it.

    Hi! i'm a norwegian girl who loves to travel, and in january next year i'm off to Africa and Asia with my friend, as a backpacker for 4,5 months. I must say that i've found a great amount of inspiration in your blog, both in what you've written about all the different places we are going to and in all of your photos!

    Wow, cool shot! Hard to find something I've not seen before these days – but this is cool, love it! I went to Bohinj at the start of the year in Slovenia and loved the people there and the general attitude. I had a great time.

    It is a work of satire one could say. It is supposed to represent slovene Hollywood with the famous faces of business people and polititians, sometimes both in one person, who are destroying our country. If I am not mistaken, most of them should be defending themselves before the court but it is common practice here that they do not appear at the trial and their cases dissappear while they carry on gouverning our country (the prime minister allegedly on the far right is such an example).
    this is how it looked from begining and the concept is for it to look worse and worse because of the weather.
