There is an unusual place for walking – the famous public garden called “The Signs of the Zodiac” - in the Russian capital, near the “Sviblovo” metro station (at the intersection of Novy Beringov Passage and Yeniseiskaya Street). The garden includes amazing metal statues, each of them symbolizing a zodiac sign.

The author of the composition is the famous Moscow sculptor Andrei Aseryants.

The public garden was opened in 2007. “The Signs of the Zodiac” public garden is the only one of its kind. There you can relax and look at the statues of all twelve signs of the Zodiac that are made of ordinary scrap metal collected at the landfill in Rostokino. However, this is the main “feature” of the sculptor who finds all the necessary materials at the capital’s landfills, this way he shows an unusual method of garbage disposal.

The composition is arranged as a circle, its centre is a telescope made of nuts and screws and other iron parts. Twelve alleys begin at the telescope: zodiac signs are placed at the ends of these alleys. Almost all sculptures are outstanding, they can even be called roguish.

Aries is a musician and a joker sitting on a drum and playing some incomprehensible wind instrument.

Taurus is the most realistic sculpture of all those in the garden.



Gemini sit in a fantastic boat, rowing and heading somewhere.



Crab is harnessed to a cart.



Leo jumps through a circus fire circle.



Virgo is a funny schoolgirl with pigtails dressed in a loose pinafore skirt.

Libra is presented as an astrologer with weights in his hands with a scale weight in one hand and a feather in the other hand. Strange as it may seem, the feather turns out to be heavier.

Scorpio is another mysterious figure, instead of a sting, it has a lantern.

Archer is made in the form of a boy-trouble maker with a slingshot aiming at a lantern.

Capricorn is a biker who poses near his motorcycle.

The next statue is Aquarius. This zodiac sign is s a winged young man watering the ground from his jug.

Pisces sit at a table and drink beer from large glasses.

The location of the public garden: Moscow, Novy Beringov Passage, “Sviblovo” metro station.

The entrance to the park is free of charge.
