If you happen to be in the village of Demidiv in the Ukraine anytime soon, you should stop by the XII Months zoo and see their recently unveiled statue of Slayer’s Tom Araya.
The owner of the zoo, Mikhail Pinchuk (Михаил Пинчук), is a big fan of Slayer, but we’re still not really sure why exactly there’s a statue of Tom Araya, with the Slayer logo behind him and the lyrics to “Dead Skin Mask” carved into stone at a zoo in the Ukraine.
A post on their facebook page and the terrible translation doesn’t really clear things up either…
Dear friends, we finally finished our disputes and jam and can say – Sculpture Tom Arayi in our park is complete and submitted for your critical examination. I can’t tell you how hard that was and how much we argued about the appropriateness of, say, a form of beards 🙂 or guitar Tom. I put the results of our labour on the official site of Tom, I heard what he just got back from Chile and resting before the European tour – perhaps drop by and join us. At least the sweetest Sandra Araya (wife) told me that she loved it. . God forbid. .. I told her the same as all the arguing about any details on the sculpture and even joked that thank god there’s Tom at the concert – and if the sculpture was called, for example, Tom on the beach. .. .
Anyway, please email (those) who wants to know how we did it.
And I’m so glad I got to Ukraine drew attention to the whole army (Multimillion-Dollar) lovers of slayer and Tom. Look at his website 🙂 and to all the approval
Propaganda, war ensemble, burial to be 😉
But really, who cares why it’s there? It’s awesome.
