Burning Portraits Made With Molotov Cocktails
What better way to remind of fallen Soviet soldiers during World War II, than to make an enormous burning hot art installation?
The walls of an abandoned WWII hospital in Yekaterinburg in Russia are now full of amazing portrait installations. They are a bit blurry but that’s because they have been burnt with the molotov cocktails, also know as the petrol bomb; basically a glass bottle filled with gasoline and a burning cloth on top.
These huge portraits are of fallen WWII soldiers, and they’re made from white bandages. A group of young artist has made them and put up on walls before they hit them with molotov cocktails, and the effect it gets is amazing; they call the installation “Eternal Flame”. Truly a great and urban way to honor the fallen soldiers.
