Bribe Monument to Appear in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is hosting an exhibition that presents models of a would-be sculpture to “a greyhound puppy” as a symbol of bribes.

Thanks to Gogol’s catch phrase from The Inspector General play – “to take bribes in greyhound puppies” - a puppy has become a bribery symbol.

The idea to immortalize a bribe caused genuine interest in sculptors from Russians, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Ukraine. Altogether 404 works have been submitted, and the jury has selected 18 most interesting ones out of them.

At the end of May the best puppy will be chosen and it will be set up in one of the squares of Petersburg.

According to the concept of the competition organizers the monument has to be in accord with the spirit of Gogol’s work, be of high avant-garde level and be original.
