Standing on the south side of Teatralnaya Ploschad in Moscow, Russia is a statue to the founder of Communism – Karl Marx.

My beautiful picture

A determined Marx emerges from a block of solid granite. The pedestal is engraved with the phrase “Workers of the World, Unite!”. The statue was unveiled in 1961. Sculptor Lev Kerbel earned the Lenin Prize for this work of art.

Sculpture Saturday is a challenge hosted by Susan Kelly at No Fixed Plans.
