  1. Soviet-era sculpture returns to Moscow

    Russia: Thousands of Muscovites attended the unveiling ceremony at the weekend of one of the most admired examples of Soviet socialist realism after six years of restoration.

    The stainless-steel Worker and Collective Farm Woman sculpture, which Vera Mukhina made for the 1937 World’s Fair in Paris, stands on a new 112-foot pedestal near Moscow’s VVT exhibition centre.

    The 80-foot, 190-tonne sculpture depicts the two figures striding forward purposefully, their raised arms holding a hammer and sickle.
