And Now, Presenting....

...former Lviv resident, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, author of Venus in Furs and world's first masochist! Yep, there's a statue of him in Lviv. That's how they roll around here. Compared to Stepan Bandera, he's a friggin' boy scout.

Oh, and there's also a giraffe store:

I'm pretty sure they don't sell giraffes. The door's not big enough. They're really a grocery store.

Is that a hand coming around Leopold's leg??

Igor Keller said...

Yes, those are hands. There's another one on the other side. I can't tell you the significance, because I haven't been able to get through Venus in Furs.
