Full-Size Statues Indoors

As souvenir building collectors, we enjoy having miniature buildings, monuments and statues in our homes. But what do you think about having a full-size statue in the center of your living room? According to the website, Gwarlingo, “Tatzu Nishi, a Japanese artist who lives in Berlin, Germany, and Tokyo, Japan, is known for his unconventional, site-specific public art projects, which transform historical monuments by placing them in domestic settings. The idea is to place public monuments, which are so often invisible and taken for granted, into a new context. After all, how often are we allowed to get up close and personal with a 13-foot statue with Christopher Columbus?”
