Sonja sees Kyiv from a different angle
Kyiv (Ukraine) is the city with deep roots to the ancient times when Christianity was accepted first on the banks of Dneeper river, and earlier to the mystical pagan era. This city has lots of mysteries and legends for those willing to listen, but a surprising and almost sensational thing was discovered just recently. Kyiv has a face O_o
Sonja found this mini sculpter "The face of Kyiv" at the fasade of London coffee house and become interested.
The first to consider the phenomenon of "face" of Kyiv was the architect Georgy Kurovsky, who held the position of chief artist of Kyiv. From what he saw he was confused and for a long time did not tell about it even to acquaintances. After all then there were 90th years, the people in general didn't believe in anything.
Georgy Kurovsky's discovery was confirmed by photos of Kyiv taken from a satellite. "Layers" of buildings and vegetation were consistently removed from the photos, and the result was a "naked" relief of our city, which is very reminiscent of a human head.
This is hypothesis about the peculiarities of the relief of the city of Kyiv, which seems to form "anthropologically correct features of the profile of the human face." ... Careful review of the terrain allows you to recognize the outlines of the human profile, facing east. (Wiki)
I've opened Google maps, switched to satelite view and tried to see it myself. It can really be seen.
That's all, folks!
Thanks for joining me today, and have a nice weekend!
