  • The area belongs to Mamayev Kurganu! I'm like a mother, I just couldn't look at this monument without tears... Mat holding on the hands of a dead son... Emotions go up! And if we imagine how many such mothers were during the war, the hair begins to stir (((

  • For me, the inhabitant of the city-hero of Volgograd, as all citizens of the former Soviet Union, this place is one of the shrines, is included in the memorial complex Mamaev kurgan. This monument is a figure of a grieving woman, inclined over the dead warrior. This image embodies a woman-mother, wife, sister, who bowed her head before the dead. On the head of the woman mourning shawl, and the dead Warrior covered with a banner of the military flag. Nearby is the swimming pool, which symbolizes the lake of tears that women shed, mourning their dead husbands, sons, brothers. Every year, and in May 9, on the day of Victory people bring to the foot of the monument a lot of living flowers.

  • It is difficult to describe such artworks. Mother holding the hands of the deceased son. It is a symbol of all matjorej the country lost in the battles of their children. The sculpture is surrounded by a small pond-"Lake of tears".
