The coppery warm terra cotta is a sharp contrast to the cooler deep grey tones of the charcoal, creating a fresh balance of neutrals.
The name of this model observes the ever polarizing art installment which occupies the corner of a major intersection in Fremont…
The Lenin statue is an infamous fixture, for better or for worse. It still generates heated debates to this day & draws attention to our eccentric neighborhood.

A blogpost onARF- Artist’s Republic of Fremont adequately summed up the presence of the Lenin statue in quirky Fremont:
“One thing that is not lost on people is the fact that Lenin represents a tragically flawed system which persecuted and killed millions of people. There are many people more worthy of being cast in bronze, but Lenin ended up in Fremont. He is a profound reminder that art can outlive politics. If art is supposed to bring out emotion, this piece is successful in accomplishing just that. To that extent, a vistor coming across Lenin may find the statue is decorated. Sometimes lights grace the statue, sometimes it’s a red clown nose. It’s just the way things happen in Fremont, the Center of the Universe.”
We just got these beautiful new frame styles from Motif Eyewear! The brushed & patterned neutrals as well as the tortoise variations make these everyday contemporary shapes more expressive. The metal temples & combo looks add a sophisticated touch to an otherwise timeless look.
Come in this weekend to see them… we are open Saturday 10-5pm!
