Ilya Muromets Monument Appears in Vladivostok

A monument to Ilya Muromets was unveiled on Tuesday, May 29 in Vladivostok.
      The sculpture was made by the Siberian artist Konstantin Zinich; the monument is a present to Vladivostok from the community of the city of Krasnoyarsk. The monument will be set up in Admiralsky Square in the city center.
      Observers point out that the author of the sculpture has depicted the legendary defender of the Russian land not as a habitual image of an epic athlete, but as a saint. After all in 1643 Ilya Muromets was canonized, and as the patron of Russian troops he is revered on a par with St. George the Victorious.
      The composition of the monument follows the canonic image, which can be seen in orthodox icons.
