Exterior decorations of the roof of Pavilion #58 "Agriculture" with fragments of Soviet symbols “hammer and sickle” framed with ears of wheat at VDNKh exhibition in Moscow. The beautiful pavilion was built in 1939 on the grounds of the recently founded Agricultural Exhibition of Soviet Union and reconstructed in 1947-1954 under the design of architects A. Tatsiy and K. Ivanchenko. The exhibition was renamed as VDNKh – All-Union Exhibition of Achievements of People’s Economy in 1959. The pavilion "Agriculture" was known as "Ukraine", "Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic" until 1964.
