The Worker and Collective Farm Woman, Moscow

(260+ reviews on the web)
Monument
Featuring ubiquitous Soviet imagery, The Worker and Collective Farm Woman represents a well-preserved example of socialist realism. Originally designed for the Soviet pavilion at the 1937 Paris World's Fair, the statue was later relocated here. Stop by the sculpture, rising to a height of more than 25 m (82 ft), and get a glimpse of the symbolism that once featured so prominently in cities around the country. The stainless steel monument depicts a man and woman clutching their famous tools, representing the laborers and collective farm workers of the USSR, respectively. Note that the figures are arranged so that their equipment forms the classic hammer-and-sickle symbol of the Communist Soviet government. Make The Worker and Collective Farm Woman a part of your Moscow vacation plans using our Moscow trip itinerary planner.

  • Magnificent example of USSR architecture
  • Worth a visit, typical Soviet.
  • Breathtaking
  • One of the greatest monuments of Moscow and Russia is a masterpiece of brilliant Mukhina. SOVIET symbol immediately after the Paris exhibition. There was an option of buying an American millionaire, and great happiness, that it was decided to reconstruct the monument after the storm of indignation and national pride remained in Russia, not only updated itself, but also the historic pedestal, magnifying the power of impressions. Itself a Muchina, at one time, very low was against it, as she said, hemp, where, until recently, sculpture and stood. And here's a historic justice done and words by Pushkin, ascended above he head of unruly Alexander column!
