Aside from being awesome pieces of art and history, statues can be fun, too, as one of our previous posts have demonstrated. And now we’re seeing that all over again in a new craze over at Twitter.

It all began when Matt Pearce, who works as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, asked: “What are your favorite public statues?” Netizens, mostly from the United States, responded eagerly and shared photos of various sculptures which ranged from moving and thought-provoking, to funny and silly.

Here’s What Countries Would Look Like If They Were People

In the global arena, every country has its image, but how would they look as people?

When it comes to the global arena, it is safe to say that each country has its own image to portray. It may paint a picture of culture, tradition, and people. In any case, they are meant to describe a country as a whole. But what if each of them actually looks like ordinary citizens of today?

This is exactly what a Russian artist by the name of Anastasia Bulgakova thought. In her project, she draws “personifications of different countries.” All of them are interestingly drawn in “militant and warrior-like,” covered in blood and dirt. Mind you, she does not aim any political persuasion here.

As she explains,

Simply because that’s what I always draw in any case, and the idea of warrior-countries gives a lot of creative freedom.

Anastasia adds that every character in her project has, in one way or another, stereotypical attributes. If for an American it might appear a bit naïve and idealistic, a Japanese dude will come with a suspicious smile. And, as she points outs, one can easily recognize her characters in the street.

Well, without further ado, here are character designs Anastasia made for each country in the world. Check them out and let us know which one is your favorite (aside from your own country, of course!).
