  • The monument is located on the very shore of the beauties of the Northern Dvina River. Maybe many people don't notice this seal, pass by, perceiving it as a normal sculpture to decorate. and are sadly mistaken! Seal for arhangelogorodcev-this is the life, saved during the war. In our city during the war as Leningrad was very hungry and cold ... The seals, which were obtained on the shores of the White Sea and even in the sleeves n. Dvina gave meat and especially fat. His lightened and fried on it at all that it was possible to fry ... potato peelings, bread rump ... and it was a delicacy! My dad was 14 years old in the year 1941 and he worked at the port of Bakarica on tap. 41 winter was terrible. a family of 5 people rescued seal, which gave her father as payment for work. He dragged it along the frozen river sledging at night after the change from the port of Bakarica on Gaydar Street in a terrible snowstorm. ... The boy came, dotashhil seal and the family lived through this summer without the scurvy and not dying of starvation .... Here's a story from the life of .... And so it was probably a lot of times the inhabitants decided to immortalize this beast ...

  • Very cute, heartwarming, unusual monument, is located in the middle of the Arkhangelsk promenade. That's the only think I don't want to, that is, in fact, a monument to food, as written in one of the previous reviews

  • In the evening in one of the warm autumn days, my colleagues and I have passed along the Embankment. The Northern Dvina River. There are many monuments. Our attention was attracted by a monument to seal. Looking at the seal, me why that unwittingly came upon the memory lines from poems library worker No. 10 district Varavino-Hong (Arkhangelsk) Jeanne Georgievna 2012: relive the war misery Residents helped seal fat. He, seal, became a symbol of freedom. The long-awaited peace is closer! He, seal, became a symbol of hope for the children, weakened by the war, for people kovavših the victory day in the city, where the convoy was in a hurry! These children are still alive, Their little left, but they remember the taste of tears, and the taste of fat, and at night he lights. ECHO is given to generations of Memory, clad in granite. Monument to the Savior-seal in Arkhangelsk. I read these lines. and my colleagues were surprised they listened. And what more can be said at this monument? These lines are very cool to express the role of seals in the war years.
