Architectural twins – separated at birth

Don't you think that this:

Looks just like this?

I certainly think so.

The image at the top is of part of a deconstructed statue in the former Soviet Union at
English Russia. Before it was disassembled and left to rust and crumble, the gigantic statue provided the image for the logo of the Soviet film distributor. It was designed by Russian sculptor Vera Mukhina. (Via Barista)

The one below it is a shot of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, which was designed by North American architect Frank Gehry. Alison Croggon's post on something completely unrelated at
Sarsaparilla got me thinking about this.

I just love the accidental 'synchronisity' of the web.
