Monument to Rembrandt Unveiled in Yoshkar-Ola

A monument to the great Dutch artist Rembrandt has been set up at the renovated Malaya Kokshaga River Embankment in Yoshkar-Ola.

      The ceremony turned to be very symbolical as it was timed to the opening of the 11th Regional Art Exhibition Big Volga.

      The river embankment is locally nicknamed Amsterdam, since it is built up with Dutch style houses.

      It is the Moscow sculptor Andrey Kovalchuk’s eighth sculpture work located at Malaya Kokshaga River Embankment. Earlier monuments to Alexander Pushkin and Eugene Onegin, the Tsar Feodor I of Russia, the Empress Elizabeth of Russia, the saints Peter and Fevroniya, the Patriarch Alexis II of Moscow, Prince Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, the Hollywood actress Grace Kelly, and Lorenzo de' Medici.

      The new sculpture was made in the Moscow Region. It took about one ton of bronze to cast the monument, whereas the pedestal is made of a single granite rock.
