Enormous statue of a man and a woman, she with sickle, him with hammer. Soviet sculpture on a typically vast scale. To ehhance the Soviet feeling it is next to a busy dual carriageway with big housing blocks on the other side and trams going past. How you imagine Moscow to be, this is it. If that sounds a little bleak the scuplture is well executed and the whole is far from unpleasant, just not on a human scale. Well worth seeing if you are in the area though probably not worth a trip on its own.

To check this out, you need some walking from the entrance of the VVT.... but once you get there - you're silenced in awe : 60 tons a piece !

I ran into this by accident and I was glad I did. It screams Soviet Russian power when you look at it. It's not far from the Cosmonaut Museum.

These two figures, near the VDNKh metro station, are impressive caricatures of the perfect Soviet citizens. Huge, metallic, muscular, devoted Communist machines that stand high above the exhibition park.

Visited after dark, and never got a good view of this statue. Probably not worth a special trip to VDNK, altho the on-site Cosmonaut Museum was good.
