    Cool Restoring and Moving the ‘Worker and Kolkhoz Woman’ Sculpture

    Restoring and Moving the ‘Worker and Kolkhoz Woman’ Sculpture
    Worker and Kolkhoz Woman is a 24.5 meter (78 feet) high sculpture made from stainless steel by Vera Mukhina for the 1937 World's Fair in Paris, and subsequently moved to Moscow. The worker holds aloft a hammer and the kolkhoz woman a sickle to form the hammer and sickle symbol.

    The sculpture was removed for restoration in the autumn of 2003 in preparations for Expo 2010. The restored statue uses a new pavilion as its pedestal, increasing its total height from 34.5 meters to 60 meters.

    It was reinstalled in Moscow few days ago.
