The sculpture «Rodina-mat zovet!»


Work of sculptor Е. V.Vuchetich and engineer Н. V.Nikitin represents a multimeter figure of the woman who have promptly stepped forward with the lifted sword. The statue is allegorical image of the Native land calling the sons on fight with the enemy.

Monument building has been begun in May, 1959 and finished on October, 15th, 1967. The sculpture at the moment of creation became the highest in the world a sculpture.

The sculpture is made of blocks of preliminary intense ferro-concrete — 5500 tons of concrete and 2400 tons of metal designs (without the basis on which it costs).

The general height of a monument — 85 metres. It is based upon the concrete base depth of 16 metres. Height of a female figure — 52 metres (weight — over 8 thousand tons).

The statue costs on a plate in height only 2 metres which is based upon the main base. This base in height of 16 metres, however it it is not visible almost — its big part is hidden underground. The statue costs freely on a plate, as a chess figure on a board.


The sculpture "Native land-mother" is brought in the book of records of Ginnes as the greatest sculpture-statue in the world.

More About Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.Check out what's happening north of Mongolia these days, in ChitaAlthough you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers. They launched the earth's second satellite, called Sputnik 1, and were the first country to put a human being into orbit around earth. (The first one is called the Moon.)After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia became a federal republic of 83 states.Text by Steve Smith.
