Monument to Credit Card Unveiled in Yekaterinburg

The first-ever monument to a bank card has been opened in Yekaterinburg. The “plastic card” made of cast iron and coated with bronze weighs over 100 kg.
       The monument has been set up at the corner of Malysheva Street and the Bankovsky Lane, next to the local VUZ-Bank, which initiated setting up the sculpture.
       The Ural sculptor Sergey Belyaev has become the author of the sculpture composition in the shape of a hand holding a credit card. The monument two to two meters large is inscribed with the name of the utopian writer Edward Bells, who predicted appearance of plastic credit cards in his novel “Look Back” published in 1888.
