A sculpture/installation created by the building’s architect himself was placed right from the main entrance. The sculpture had the letters “V.M.” carved into its body – a serious violation according to the socialist authorities. As years passed by, the carving became acceptable. Recently the artwork was displaced and sold as scrap iron with no consideration towards its historical significance. Also, there was no reaction from any cultural authority (Ministry of Culture could have interfered).
