Коллекция городских скульптур.

В Амстердаме поставят бронзовую статую проститутке. Уже получили одобрение властей.

А по-моему, отлично! Почему чиновникам ставят, кровопийцам царям ставят, рабочим (тоже, между прочим, продающим свое тело и время) ставят, а проституткам шиш с маслом?

Еще не известно, кто больше страдает и кто полезнее обществу: сталевар, генеральный менеджер-первый президент или красавица с улицы красных фонарей.

Amsterdam’s red light district is reportedly to receive a bronze statue dedicated to prostitutes around the world.

According to the Dutch agency ANP, sculptress Els Rijerse made the statue at the request of a former prostitute Mariska Majoor, who a decade ago founded a centre on prostitution in the Dutch capital.

Majoor was quoted as saying by ANP that the statue would be a first of its kind and that it had received the blessing of the city authorities.

The statue represents a self-assured woman, her hands on her hips, looking sideways towards the sky, and standing on a doorstep, ANP said.

The precise place where the statue will be laid and its title have not yet been announced, it said.
