Overview

This beautiful bronze statue was a gift from the Soviet Union in 1963. Sculpted by a Russian duo, it depicts a farmer who faces forward to join the revolution, while his wife bids him farewell. Gracing the traffic circle in front of Hyatt Aryaduta Hotel, this outstanding art form conveys Communist overtones and ranks quite low in popularity among the locals. To some, however, it stands as a symbol of peace amid the city's traffic and pollution.
