A Big Glass Freedom Pole
The controversial glass pole didn't care about peoples protests and signatures and is now up and open for everyone's eyes, fingers and urine. Not much else to do than to take weird photographs as now it has become unclear what the statue is for: The War of Independence or for general freedom?
Situated in the centre of Tallinn, at the edge of Freedom Square. Coordinates are not necessary because one just can't miss it, especially at night when it - if to use the words of the girl on the picture - shines like a bloody christmas tree.
Ah, we'll learn to love it. Or ignore it. At least it's something new and very different for the town. Hopefully the concrete square that will be built in front of it will be prettier and more suitable than the parking lot that was there for years.
