Artist Unknown, “Courage”, 1971, Reinforced Concrete
Located in the city of Brest in Belarus, the sculpture “Courage” at the War Memorial Complex is a tribute to the famous “courage” defense of the Red Army against the German assault on the Soviet Union during the first days of World War II. The 32 meter high monument displays the head of a soldier next to a flag with hammer and sickle. On the back side of the monument one can find bas-reliefs representing the most important episodes of the fortress defence
The development of the War Memorial Complex was headed by sculptor Aleksandr Pavlovich Kibalnikov, a laureate of the Lenin and State Prizes of the USSR and a popular painter of the USSR.
This blog is a refugee and a survivor of the Great Tumblr Inquisition of December 17th, 2018. I am gay artist, who received training at the Rhode Island School of Design, and now, a retired high-end fine art framer living in Maryland, USA. My interests and studies in life run a wide gamut from art to history and from the scientific to the esoteric. I have been building this blog of images and texts for the last eight years. My wish is that my posts pique the interest of viewers and encourage them to experience more.
