A Place I'll Never Go

I hereby pledge to never visit the Museum of the Great Patriotic War in Kiev, Ukraine.  This picture scared the shit out of me.
It's not the stark communist aesthetic, although that is definitely creepy, it's the size.  Statues of people creep me out, oversize statues of people doubly so.  Put one of these underwater* and I will scream like a little girl.

*  I didn't realize I had an irrational fear of underwater statues until I saw a photo of one.  Google "Jesus statue underwater" and you'll probably see the one I'm talking about.  No, I'm not going to link.  I'm going to close my eyes and plug my ears and wait until the scary underwater Jesus is no longer around.
