Restoring and Moving the ‘Worker and Kolkhoz Woman’ Sculpture (63 pics)

Posted in Pictures   1 Dec 2009   / 6381 views

Worker and Kolkhoz Woman is a 24.5 meter (78 feet) high sculpture made from stainless steel by Vera Mukhina for the 1937 World's Fair in Paris, and subsequently moved to Moscow. The worker holds aloft a hammer and the kolkhoz woman a sickle to form the hammer and sickle symbol.
The sculpture was removed for restoration in the autumn of 2003 in preparations for Expo 2010. The restored statue uses a new pavilion as its pedestal, increasing its total height from 34.5 meters to 60 meters.
It was reinstalled in Moscow few days ago.

Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.
