Of Course The Ousted President of Ukraine Commissioned a Nude Portrait of Himself
During the last weekend of April, Kyiv saw an exhibit of all the sumptuous ridiculousness deposed Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych had stashed in his villa at Mezhyhirya, just outside of Kyiv. It's stunning that the president of a country constantly teetering on the brink of economic collapse had the funds to purchase so many posh, unnecessary things, including countless images of, well, himself.
Two likenesses in one shot. I can't tell if it's pointillism or just crap.
And another...in brass?
Talk about a lasting message.
A leader of men. Who runs from the battlefield.
Lots of icons.
Note his wife's timeless baroque dress. So awesome. (I think this is actually a portrait of his mistress)
We probably don't need to see this.
I'm inviting him to my next party. source
