Golden Statues

Golden Statues

When I walked at the All-Russian Exhibition center the Fountain of Friendship of Nations was turned off and was pretty cloudy and no sun light.... but at one moment the sun appeared throughout the grey skies and it was so incredible contrast with these beautiful golden statues, so I decided to make several shots...

"Friendship of Nations" is the main fountain at the All-Russian Exhibition Centre (VVTs). The Fountain has gilded statues of maidens in the national costumes of the sixteen Soviet republics demurely encircle a golden wheat sheaf.

On the background you can see the main pavilion (House of Russia's Nations) which was built in 1954. It has a strong vertical 56 meter-high tower decorated with gold-plated cereal pattern shot up in front of the entrance to the pavilion. The pavilion crowned by the spire with the star is rising to almost 100 meters high by ledges resembling steps of a gigantic staircase, hovering over the entire exhibition ensemble.

Arthur is AMAZING !!! I visited Volgograd for a few days in December '06 & when I was at the airport in Volgograd waiting for my flight to Moscow, I found out that the flight to Moscow was to be re-directed from Sheremetyevo to Domodedovo. I sent a frantic text message to Arthur asking if he could drive like a lunatic from SVO to Domodedovo to meet me. When I arrived at Domodedovo, Arthur was there to meet me ! Now that is A+ customer service !!! If you are ever visiting Moscow, hire Arthur. He is a true professional !!!
