Monument to Yoshkin Cat Set up in Yoshkar Ola

 The sculptural composition Yoshkin Cat has been set up next to the main building of the Mari-El State University in Yoshkar Ola.

      The bronze sculpture weighing almost 150 kilos was cast in Kazan and designed by a group of artists, including local sculptors Sergey Jandubaev and Anatoly Shirnin.

      They are also the authors of several monuments set up in Mari-El; these are sculptures of the national hero Prince Akpars, Mari-El actor Yvan Kyrlya, painter Alexander Grigoriev, gymnast Zynaida Druzhinina and toilers of the home front.

The idea of creating a monument to this “original folklore character” was initiated by the head of Mari-El Republic Leonid Markelov. At the same time no budgetary assets were spent on the sculpture – all the works were paid by anonymous “Moscow businessmen”.
