September 28, 2012 in Irkutsk appeared a sculpture “Geologists.” It decorates the bank of the Angara River in the historical center of Irkutsk. Sculpture, devoted to the hard, but romantic and noble profession of the geologist, is a work of young sculptor from Krasnoyarsk, Yevgenia Druzhina. A native of Irkutsk, she embodied in the metal easily readable images of geologists.
Meanwhile, in the world, as it turns out, there are lots of sculptural images, obelisks, stelae, commemorative signs dedicated to the severe profession of a geologist. However, in Russia, they are few. In particular, in the Siberian and northern territories, such as Surgut, Urengoi, Nefteyugansk, etc.
