Description of the monument to Alexander Pushkin in Moscow


It is difficult to imagine the capital of Russia without a monument to the greatest poet. It is made of granite. This already makes such a monument as something eternal, without which it is impossible to imagine a city. The creator of the monument set himself this task: to keep it forever.

Pushkin's head on this monument is tilted slightly forward. He has lively, but at the same time sad eyes. They seem to look at us from the era in which the poet lived. It seems that the sculptor captured the poet, who is in constant creative search. This is evidenced by his forehead wrinkles. The poet is constantly thinking about something, and these thoughts do not allow him to be distracted.

The monument to Pushkin in the capital was built on the day of his birth in the square named after him. The monument was built in 1880. On this square, Pushkin looks quite natural: his right hand is behind the coat, and his left is also naturally behind.

The monument is built so that the observer has the illusion of natural movement. It seems that the poet in the next moment will move and come to us. But, of course, he cannot do this, and therefore he looks at us with a sad look.

The monument to Pushkin and the square on which it is located create a single architectural whole. On both sides of the monument are massive cast-iron lanterns. They create a unique historical flavor of the century before last on the square. I must say that this task was very good for the sculptor.

Around the monument is a chain similar to laurel leaves. It is fixed on bronze bedside tables. The square itself is surrounded by trees and shrubs. This is done in order to create a special world. We are transported into it every time we come to Pushkin Square to visit the poet.
