Having worked with children for many years, this sculpture spoke loudly. There are two unaware children playing as the 13 evil statues surround them. View from the front and look at the detail and then walk around behind for another perspective.

I love these statues. Each vice is so humane! Drug addiction has a very intelligent face. Alcoholism is a handsome guy too. This monument is different from the old-skool stone or metal figures like Pushkin monument, or marshal Zhukov monument, I am sure it has...More
