Sticky Graffiti Lion Belfort in Orange

Sticky Graffiti Lion Belfort in Orange

I spotted this rather funny “graffiti” on Friday. After a demonstration at Denfert Rochereau the demonstrators plastered the great Lion of Belfort with little stickers turning almost the entire lion Orange.

I snapped it with my iphone and it looks pretty cool.

I normally oppose graffiti on monuments but this one is quite funny, as it’s stickers I assume they will come off rather easily (I hope).

Actually Eric Tenin got a better shot of it which he published on his blog (actually I wonder if that wasn’t him on the bicycle shooting it up there).

Here is his photo:

    It looks like its trying to hold him down and he’s trying to push out of it.

    You are right Davis. From a distance it actually looked quite nice. Maggie – never saw it from that viewpoint before. True it does look like he is trying to push himself out!

    BTW if anyone is worried, I saw them take it off it wasn’t too big a deal it seemed to peel off quite easily.

    Thank you for your comment, forgive me and be welcome in The tattooed city.
