A statue of a noble military general recently turned to the dark side when the night came. The snow-transformed Darth Vader figure is actually a statue of Jakub Wejher, the founder of a town called Wejherowo in northern Poland, where the statue is located. 

This is a monument to Jakub Weiher located in Wejherowo, Poland.

This is not the first time a Star Wars statue has appeared on European soil. In Ukraine, a Lenin statue was permanently transformed into Darth Vader as part of a decommunization project.

Reddit User MauriceEscargot has also posted a picture of a street in Poland named after Obi-Wan.

Recently, a French artist, Travis Durden has took up Star Wars statues as an art form. Durden has cleverly created photographs that morph the heads of Star Wars characters onto the heads of greek statues.
