The famous statue in Tel Aviv’s Habima Square was turned into a set of happy emoticons in honor of the Jewish holiday of Purim, which is celebrated this week with great merriment and wild costumes.

The smiley faces tower over the popular square. The statue was created by Mosh Kadishman, and is one of the city’s most famous artistic landmarks.

The photo was taken by Miriam Alster/Flash90.
