Monument to Shuttle Traders Set Up in Yekaterinburg

This Monday, July 20, saw the unveiling of the monument to shuttle traders that buy goods wholesale abroad and import them to the retail domestic market.
      
      The idea of the monument had been initiated by the founders of the Urals largest merchandise market Tagansky Ryad, by the central entrance of which the monument was erected.
      
      The sculpture depicts a former teacher and a former engineer who quit their profession to become shuttle traders. They are supposedly the typical representatives of the merchandise market traders.
      
      Both the figures are set up on a pedestal in the shape of the globe, which symbolizes the enormous distances that traders have to cover during their shuttle trips. The author of the bronze monument, which is 3 meters high and over two tons heavy, is the local sculptor Vladimir Krivushin.
