Monument to Peter I in Peter and Paul Fortress

Pamyatnik Petru Pervomu v Petropavlovskoi kreposti

This is certainly the most contradictory monument to the founder of St Petersburg. The monument was presented to the city in 1991. Proportions of the tzar's figure were deformed on purpose: small head, huge body and long fingers. Prototype of the monument was the model made by the sculptor Rastrelli right after the death of the Emperor.
