Bengaluru, Aug 11: Artists in Bengaluru definitely know how to draw the attention of officials to civic issues that pose a problem to the common man in the city.
On Tuesday, panic gripped people in the Yeshwanthpur market when they saw a huge anaconda emerging out of a pothole with a human arm in its mouth! Soon people realized that the anaconda was fake and that it was an art installation.
In a bid to draw the attention of the Bengaluru Bruhat Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to the condition of the roads in the area, the Namma Bengaluru Foundation (NBF) installed the fake snake with the help of artists.
However this is not the first time that artists have used their creative side to draw the attention of local authorities towards the condition of the roads.
Earlier this year artist Baadal Nanjundaswamy too had placed a fake crocodile in the middle of the road to create awareness about the horrible conditions of the road.
