Rodenstock Eyewear: Giant banana peel

A sculpture made by the Berlin artist Stefan von Essen which looks like a giant bana peel, was set in various shopping malls. Wearing bifocal glasses by Rodenstock you can’t overlook a slippery banana peel on the street.

Good looking, but wrong. You actually see the banana this big without Rodenstock glasses. Sorry,

Now, THIS is inventive: Glasses which show you probably dangerous objects in a lot bigger size!

(Hm, what about probably dangerous dogs? That'd be scary...)

C'mon! It shows everyone, that you will not overlook dangerous things with good glasses. And it's a nice peace of art and design. I like it
