Gruto Parkas, Part 2

Moving on through Gruto Parkas, more notable sculptures to see. Youth again, looking ready to solve all the world's problems. Or root on their favorite football team and get a few beers.

Serious Stalin. Some communist official, looking like Robert De Niro going as Hitler for Halloween with a nose bandage (we're guessing he wore glasses).

In addition to sculptures, the park features various items from the Soviet past. To make sure you go through the whole park, prison guard roosts are scattered about. Forward, march.

Archetypes are good for themes. Worker as Calvin Klein-like underwear ad model? Women are occasionally featured.

The monumental, crushing theme of communism.
