Talker Bird
The sculpture " Talker Bird " is funny, Vologda, Shopping area.
The author is the Vologda blacksmith Artyom Marshak. On the pedestal, this date and “gift to Vologda residents” are stamped. Monument to the mind and quick wits! : D

Pooch basking on a hatch

The architectural composition “The Pooch basking in the hatch”, address: Vologda, Torgovaya Ploshchad (near the Palisad Hotel ). For some reason I did not find a sculpture of a dog pissing on a pole. Either the sculpture is gone or badly searched. In theory, she is somewhere near this dog.

Piggy bank
Wrought iron piggy bank on the Famous Mountain (near the Vologda Kremlin ).
Alexander Chernov, Sergey Fominsky, Oleg Konin and Alexey Nikulin have been working on the project for five years. As a tree, an apple tree with liquid fruits was chosen, which symbolizes family values. In the trunk there are several holes for coins that fall into a large piggy bank. As the authors of the project themselves say, before lowering a coin, one must make a wish. You can also sit under a wrought tree, a bench is arranged around the art object.
When the piggy bank has accumulated, it will be opened. But where to spend the money raised, the residents of Vologda will decide in an online survey.

The letter "O", opened June 29, 2012 to the day of the city. The idea of ​​the monument belongs to the students of the Vologda Institute of Business and reflects the famous Vologda "ocany".
And yes, from this angle, the monument looks the most interesting :))
Address: Vologda, Square on Cathedral Hill.

Shod bench "Let's sit-pook"
Wrought iron bench "We sit-pookem", a gift from the blacksmiths to the city.
Well, the guests of Vologda and Vologda are happily photographed on this bench.

As I understood it, after the installation, a accordion and a collection of poems with lines were added: “It is light in my room, it is from a night star. Mother will take a bucket, silently bring water ... ".

Wood mill
The wooden mill in the park on Sobornaya Gorka near the kids is very popular :) Art object “The Mill of Desires”. Quite a cool idea.

The door to ...

The art object “ Door to ... ” on the Vologda river embankment appeared on September 6, 2014 as part of the celebration of my birthday at the Voice of Crafts festival. A large forged door was installed at the intersection of Leningradskaya and Mayakovsky Streets. The art object is decorated with images of goldfish, the sun, the Vologda Kremlin .

Then there will be a horror :)
