#Blog - FRANKENSTEIN in Plainpalais

Yesterday I finally took some time to check out the recent Frankenstein statue they put in Plainpalais, Geneva (,Switzerland).

Detroit has RoboCop, Geneva has good ol' Frankie (Michael/Samuel/"The Monster"). The decision had been voted by local citizens (such as myself). As a tribute to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (the story taking place nearby, while the monster actually ran off to what once was here before a forest).

It looks great.

Glad they went a bit "freestyle" with it, trying to match the description in the book, rather than Universal Monsters' Frankenstein look (which I'm sure they would have to pay for to use the likeness anyhow!).
