Statue of Lenin with Mickey Mouse’s head to be unveiled in Moscow

(Ananova) A life-size statue of Lenin with the head of Mickey Mouse is to go on display in Moscow.

The five foot statue is the work of controversial Russian artist Alexander Kosolapov.

It will be exhibited at an art gallery in the city, reports Pravda.

The artist, who has lived in New York for 20 years, previously won a landmark court battle with Coca Cola after the company objected to his use of their logo in a poster which also featured Lenin.

He said his work celebrates the “heritage of socialist realism”.
