Characters of Krylov's fables at Patriarch's Ponds

There’s really something magical at that place glorified by Bulgakov and maybe that is why nobody will be much surprised to see here the famous characters of favorite Krylov’s fables. This sculptural ensemble was installed here in 1976 by sculptors A. Drevins, D. Mitlyanskaya and architect A. Chaltykyana.

 

They depicted 12 fables and their main characters, including a monkey in front of a mirror, a lap-dog barking at the elephant and of course a crow with cheese. And above them - the author – Ivan Krylov observing them from the height of his pedestal.
