"Springtime for Lenin in Moscow", a circa 1970s full walking statuette by Sychev based on a May, 1919 photograph.

Silumin ally casting, 14" tall, the plinth is approx. 4" x 4 ". The name of the sculptor who created the model for the statuette is at the top of the plinth, a part of the die.

Somewhat more detailed likeness than most other contemporary Silumin statuettes we have seen, this piece is based on one of a series of well- known photographs taken of Lenin reviewing troops on the Red Square.

Somewhat more detailed likeness than most other contemporary Silumin statuettes we have seen, this piece is based on one of a series of well- known photographs taken of Lenin reviewing troops on the Red Square. It was probably one of those Moscow spring days that started out rather cold but warmed up sufficiently that Lenin did not want to wear his coat - but did not want to carry it, either. The resultant dramatic look of the leader wearing his topcoat flung theatrically over his shoulders appealed to many Soviet artists and sculptors over the decades. The original model for the statuette was created by Sychev at some point in 1950s; near the end of the decade a limited number of bronze copies of it was produced by the Leningrad's Monumental Sculpture factory. The Silumin version probably started to appear in the late 60s - early 70s. Mp> In very good condition. There are a few minor dings and small scuffs that can be found at close inspection, but no significant wear or damage. There was once a presentation engraving next to the name of the sculptor, but it was carefully erased without leaving obvious scars.

Please note, the medal is our photo is for size reference, not included with the statuette.
