This is a beautiful Russian art style statue made in the 70’s. There different issues made of this statue in the Soviet years but this one is more unique because of it’s size. Normally they were made much smaller. This one is the biggest one made making it much more rare.
In 1959, this statue promoting the slogan Let Us Beat Swords into Plowshares was donated by the Soviet Union to the United Nations and was made of bronze. It was sculpted by Yevgeny Vuchetich to represent the human wish to end all wars by converting the weapons of death into peaceful and productive tools that are more beneficial to mankind. It is standing at the United Nations building still to this day.
It was donated to improve relationsships between the Soviet Union and Western Country’s. Wich did not work.
Yevgeny Vuchetich was a prominent Soviet sculptor and artist. He is known for his heroic monuments, often of allegoric style, including The Motherland Calls, the largest sculpture in the world at the time.
