French artist James Colomina has chosen a playground at New York’s Central Park to place his red statue of Vladimir Putin. If you don't know yet, the artist is known for placing red statues in unconventional areas without prior announcement.

The Vladimir Putin statue has been spotted before in some playgrounds in Paris, Luxembourg, and Spain. With the size of a child, you can see the sculpture seeing Putin with his hands tucked between his legs as he rides a kid-sized tank.

Many children play with the statue. Colomina said in his recent Instagram post that this sculpture aims at denouncing the absurdity of war and at highlighting children's courage when faced with violent, catastrophic situations triggered by others. Basically, he is referencing Russia's war with Ukraine and the Russian president's role in it.
