The first monument on planet Earth to the Lord of the Sith, the Supreme Commander of the Imperial Army Darth Vader appeared in Odessa, it is located on the territory of the Pressmash plant (28 Stolbovaya Street).
The famous Odessa artist Alexander Milov turned the factory monument to Vladimir Lenin, which was subject to dismantling in accordance with the “decommunization” legislation, into Darth Vader. Now the statue is not in danger.
The monument was changed at the request of the labor collectives of the enterprises located at Pressmash, who did not want to part with the monument.
"Pressmashevsky" Lenin was made of plaster and for decades pretty dilapidated. The sculptor had to strengthen the statue, covering it with a special composition, the formula of which is kept secret. Vader parts are made of titanium alloy and glued to the leader of the world proletariat with special glue.
The author hopes that the monument to the Dark Lord will be included in the tourist routes. Over time, a recreation area will be arranged around it. By the way, the statue "distributes" wireless Internet - the corresponding equipment is built into Vader's head.
