Swedish Statue Sisters...



Looking at the posts over the last couple of months, it strikes me that you haven’t seen a picture of my ugly mug since early November, and so this evening I’m gonna be a little self indulgent and post this one from a recent trip to Stockholm, Sweden.

Having a first walk about the delightful city centre of Stockholm with housemate John, this was one of the first things that caught our site, so, naturally, we had to get our imitating hats on. And what a fine statue it was to imitate too, featuring a couple of naked ladies. As you can see it was a bit on the chilly side to strip off, but above I managed to conjure up a makeshift bust by shoving a jumper under my coat, while John below also manages to create a lovely fake chest, as well as utilising his bag into a makeshift bucket. Beautiful.



Sadly, I can’t really find much info about the statue on the interweb, although once again I took a cheeky snap of the plaque adorning the statue. I do believe that Systrarna is Swedish for sisters, but that is about all I can reveal…

tell the truth now - you didn't stick anything up your coats did you? Either of you. It was all natural.

'natural' is just about the last word that sprung to mind.
