Gorky Park

Ivan Shadr, Girl with an Oar
Moscow, 1930s

A spiral structure in the background is the famous parachute tower designed by Pavel Grokhovsky - a one-man brain trust who developed all kinds of innovative concepts, from an armored hovercar to rocket artillery devices.

I believe that statute was destroyed and has just been rebuilt in Gorky Park - I read about it somewhere or other.
