ABC Wednesday "Z" is for "zebra crossing"

Some artist used his or her literal sense of humor to create zebra crossings in front and beside Vuk Stefanović Karadžić and Dositej Obradović's museum downtown. I've noticed a couple of fancy crosswalks downtown, so perhaps I'll show you more.

Check out other Z's at ABC WEDNESDAY.

Oh wow, those are fantastic! I bet everybody would pay a lot more attention to where they're walking or driving.

Terrific! I'd like to see more of them - wish we had a few near here!

I just read another post where they did zebra crossings, too, but this is great with the actual painting of a zebra on the pavement! What we do here is push a button to activate a light so the cars will stop. :D

That's an eye catching zebra crossing!

Has a whimsical tone to it. Very nice.

Alexa said...

Oh, yes—please do. Would love to see more!

These are amazing paintings. But you don't really have Zebras there do you?

Liliana Holtzman said...

Very creative! Amazing that it's allowed. Public spaces are considered government property here in the US and no "embellishments" are allowed!
I love those old buildings.
Thanks for these wonderful photos.

This is such a fun capture

Lily Hydrangea said...

Amazing Z capture Bibi! You shoot the best pictures.

Kitty said...

I would hate to walk or drive on this artwork. What a find!

Zivota said...

Another great post! I know the man who did them the zebras - he is a paintor, and used to be the director of the ''Dom kulture'' (Cultural Centre) in my home town, Valjevo. a very pleasant man!

Tash said...

this is fabulous! Best Z ever. Very humorous and I love how you combined the view of the old streets too.
Is that a shadow in the middle of the intersection or a "kanalizacija" cover?

Jacob said...

Now that is street art that I can enjoy! And so practical! You can tell a friend, "Meet me at the Zebra Crossing!"

Chuck Pefley said...

Super Cool!! I just hope that Zebra doesn't bite -:)

Jilly said...

This is amazing. I love that the authorities have allowed this. Good for them. And good for the artist. Great stuff!
