View of the sculpture titled “Science,” of a young man resting a large book on his knee, at the main entrance to Moscow State University (MGU). In the background is the right tower of the building, which is topped by a giant thermometer five meters in diameter. The statue by well-known Soviet architect and sculptor Vera Mukhina - creator of the famous Moscow statue, "Rabochy I Kolkhoznitsa" ("The Worker and the Collective Farm Woman") - was completed in the early 1950s and symbolizes the “Eternal Youth of Science.”
