The soldiers of the monument of the Soviet Army in downtown Bulgaria capital Sofia "woke up" Friday morning to wearing colorful hoods, in what is their latest painting.
The authors of the street art remain unknown.
In the last few years the Monument has been subject of heated arguments between those who want it to be dismantled and those who support its existence in the very heart of Sofia.
The most famous "decoration" of the monument so far happened in June 2011when a group of street artists painted the bronze figures of Soviet soldiers to represent various US pop culture characters, turning them into The Joker, Wolverine, Santa, Superman, Ronald McDonald, Captain America, Robin, and Wonder Woman, among others.
