Republic of Councils Monument

Republic of Councils Monument

This monumental sculpture is titled “Republic of Councils Monument” and was cast in bronze in 1969 based on a 1919 revolutionary poster. I liked this capture with the tourist in it (unlike usual!) as she gives an idea of the enormous size of this piece.
