The Mosquito Monument is a testament to human compassion. I hate mosquitoes. Everyone hates mosquitoes. But art knows neither love nor hate.

This Mosquito Monument stands seven feet tall and can be found in Ladnyj, Russia. It was made by Valery Chaily out of old car and truck parts. I suppose I am fine with this mosquito monstrosity existing, as long as it doesn’t start flying around and biting people. Then we’d have a problem. Stats for Insect Shrines Trending: Older & Chilly
