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.

Hiring Arthur as my driver/guide was the wisest decision I did when I planned my trip to Moscow. He drove me to places I would never be able to visit by myself, even if I spoke any Russian (with is NOT the case). He is also an exceptional photographer, and made the documentation of my trip much better. The fact that he is very knowledgeable in Russian history and culture, make his company even more pleasant and adds great value to his guidance. I strongly recommend Arthur and when I be back to Moscow (what I plan next year with my son), I hope he is available for me to hire him again.
