The thematic photo album devoted to the Defender Day is published on our website
The photo album "Military theme in the works of Russian sculptors of the second half of the XIXth – the beginnings of the 20th century" is published in our photo gallery on the eve of the Defender of the Motherland Day.
The image of the Russian soldier was one of the popular subjects for small forms of the indoor sculpture. Such sculptors as E. A. Lanceray, B. I. Orlofsky, I. F. Kovshenkov, A. P. Red’kin, L. V. Sherwood, etc.refered to the military theme in their works. The figurines, desktop compositions, press-paper and other houseware and decoration items made of bronze, help us to imagine how a Russian soldier looked like during various historical periods. Detailed reproduction of military uniform immortalized in metal, equipment, army attributes and weapons is of the utmost interest.
Images of Russia defenders, immortalized in metal years later, reflects the mood of courage bravery, being a reminder on Russian army military prowess at all times.
Happy holiday, happy Defender’s Day!
