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.

A fantastic and energetic statue that seems to be running with all guns blazing, Helen. Very oversized and mind provoking! BV

Great composition with the arch and this statue leaping into the frame. "V"

Excellent framing! Somehow it is a bit scary... from this angle it seem that he is coming running at full speed and I am not so sure if he has friendly intentions. V
