Illustrations Mocking Historical Statues

Monumental Nobodies, is the bold title of this artwork from Matthew Quick, an Australian artist that challenges the usual respect we have for the historical statues that represent the power of ancient empires or the bravery of some historical leader.

Adding little modern irrelevant objects to the statues make them look in awkward shameful situations and totally destroy the image of power that this monuments projects.
