An unusual sculpture “White City” appeared in the centre of Moscow, near the business centre “White Square” close to the “Belorusskaya” metro station, as the Internet portal M24.ru reports.
Seven giant tin figures are located between the skyscrapers near the metro. This is the first attempt to install a sculptural composition being not an illustration of a specific event and not dedicated to a specific person. It represents the people in the city. As of today, it is a unique example of philanthropy reviving the traditions of Russian patronage that existed in Russia before the revolution.
The figures are made of stainless steel in a very difficult technique. The choice of the material is not accidental. It corresponds to some of the elements used in the design of the buildings and lighting on the square. The figures made of steel are designed to find a compromise between the different styles of buildings surrounding the site.
