"The Magnificent Seven" star Yul Brynner was born in Vladivostok on July 11, 1920 and, although a U.S. citizen at the time when he received an Oscar for The King and I, he can be justly considered the first Russian to have received an Academy Award.

      The statue portrays Brynner wearing Asian costume akin to the one in which he starred in his best-known role, that of the King of Siam. His son Rock Brynner who regularly visits Vladivostok for the "Pacific Meridian" film festival remarked upon the high artistic level of artwork in honour of his father.

      The monument was designed by sculptor Alexey Bokiy.
