Monument "TO POET" (V.V. Mayakovskiy)



The monument jammed the city street. The colossus seats in an awkward posture, one knee in the by-street. He holds a house in his hand. House, where he was born some time ago. Board shanty shines with curved small windows, behind the light curtains - silhouettes of people. In the house - the poet museum.

The monument is arranged as a steel frame, plated with metal sheets. Warming cable laid inside makes the monument surface warm. In winter loving couples and tramps hide from cold weather in folds of the steel dress.
