  • I have this place evokes extremely unpleasant feelings, historical or aesthetic value of this monument. Macabre sculptures that safeguarded the bars. It even taking pictures you don't want to

  • The name of the monument very well conveys his essence. In this case, Mikhail Shemyakin acts as a CAP and his sculpture shows generally obvious. So, what do we see? In the center of the composition of two children blindfolded, and children are no longer small, and closer to pubertatnomu age. That is soon to go into adult life with all its problems. But as kids about the problems they do not know anything (hence the closed eyes): they are innocent and happy. However, flaws do not doze. Their physical incarnation (such which sees them sculptor) surrounded by children and are drawn to him, wanting to get into their network. "Perverse" figures are grotesque enough cause not fear and smile, but a smile this rather sad than joyful. The dominant feature of the monument is the figure of "Indifference", and if you think about it, it really is a terrible Vice, which contributes to the development of all the others. It is possible to arrange a small quest, trying to guess what Vice impersonates a figure because many of the inscriptions on the pedestals are barely distinguishable. Nothing horrible and repulsive in this sculptural Group No. She modestly so was placed in the Park in bolotnaya square and its "presence" to anyone specifically.

  • A famous monument by Mikhail Shemyakin was unveiled in 2000. The composition includes fifteen sculptures, among them two kids and thirteen allegorical vices, like War, Ignorance, Indifference, Alcoholism, Theft, etc.
  • Amazing place. Must see in Moscow
  • I thought this was going to be a park of statues, but it's one piece with multiple statues. The concept sounds odd, but I think it makes sense when you see it. It's a well done piece that should be viewed from all sides.
  • A must see, really symbolic
  • Very well-done and thus thought-provoking! One of my favorites.
