Commemorative structures-WWII

2 May

Some of you may have already seen these really rad sculptures from Yugoslavia Via Crack Two , buuuut just in case you didn’t here is some eye candy to get you through the next hour or so of your Monday shift.

“These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš). They were designed by different sculptors (Dušan Džamonja, Vojin Bakić, Miodrag Živković, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few) and architects (Bogdan Bogdanović, Gradimir Medaković…), conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic.” Via Crack Two
