In the Clouds at Sunset
The side view of the 24,5 meter (80 ft) sculpture of The Worker and Collective Farmer at the main entrance into VDNKh exhibition center framed by trees. The grand statues were placed on the high pedestal (34,5 meters / 113 ft), which makes them look as if they are walking straight into the skies lit up by sunset.
The statue was made from stainless steel by a sculptor Vera Mukhina for the 1937 World's Fair in Paris. The worker holds a hammer while the collective farmer bears a sickle forming the symbol of Soviet Union.
