Sofia, Bulgaria

The statue of Sveta Sofia built in 2000 and replaced the statue of Lenin in the city center of Sofia. There were many controversial opinions among the locals about this statue. For many, the erotic appearance of the statue doesn't look appropriate to a Christian Saint. Others support that it is very likely the sculptor was aiming to show the attractiveness of wisdom (sophia in Greek) and that would justify the erotic appearance. What do you think?
