Grigory Rasputin monument in Tyumen
On the territory of the modern perinatal center in Tyumen appeared a monument to Grigory Rasputin. The place was not chosen by chance: it is here the old man was undergoing treatment after being stabbed in the stomach in 1914, and then worked as an orderly. The statue of an old man in a full-length, the hand rests on on a Viennese chair, which according to legend, helped him to heal men’s disease. Rasputin – known historical figure, and he deserves this monument. According to Tyumen sculptor Vladimir Zolotukhin, he used archival photographs working on the monument. The composition appeared thanks to the sponsors of 15 Tyumen enterprises.
Unfortunately, the monument is made of glass, plastic, but such a historical figure deserves a solid monument, at least bronze. Rasputin was a believer, and many of his prophecies come true. He was a real saint, brutally murdered 30 December 1916. All the legends that go of him – no more than a fairy tale, invented by enemies to defame.
