Monument to Peter I «Tsar Carpenter» — copy from copy

In St. Petersburg, in the Admiralty Garden, there is a small pleasant monument to Peter I - "The Tsar Carpenter".

The sculptor L. A. Bernshtam, who worked in Paris in 1907, showed at the exhibition plaster sketches of sculptures "Peter I Learning to Ship Crafts in Saardam" and "Peter I Rescuing Fishermen Near Lakhta". These works were purchased by Nicholas II, who decided to donate bronze sculptures to St. Petersburg for the 200th anniversary of the Poltava victory. In the period 1909 - 1910, both sculptures were installed on the Admiralteyskaya embankment. In 1911year in Paris, the master made another casting of the statue, which was donated by Russia to the Dutch city of Saardam (now Zaandam).

In January 1919, the monument was dismantled under the pretext of “minor artistic value” / “ugly and anti-artistic” and melted down. A copy that stood in the Summer Garden is also lost.

In 1996 restored from a copy installed on the main square of Zaandam - a gift from the Kingdom of the Netherlands for the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Russian fleet and the Grand Embassy in 1696.
