Heavenly Kiev

Or at least, that's what it looks like, as Ukrainian art director Alexey Kondakov used photo software to insert figures of angels and the gods of ancient mythology into some everyday spaces in Kiev, the city where he lives and works. Here's one:

Betcha didn't know that the virgin Mary rode the subway, did you?

It's kind of interesting, because if the story of the Nativity were to take place today, in all probability Mary would be the kind of person who would ride a subway to work. Maybe cleaning houses in an upscale neighborhood. She might have had to go back to work when Jesus was still an infant, and maybe carried him on the ride home.

The angels, on the other hand, have it easy. When you have wings, you don't even have to jump the turnstile to ride for free. You just float it.
