Astounding Sculpture "The Soldier sleeps, and the service goes!"

The sculpture to a careless or maybe very tired guard was installed at the shopping centre «Tretyakov Plaza» in 2007.


The poor guy fell asleep on sentry duty on his stool with his baton behind. At first the guard was dozing comfortably inside the mall, but later was removed to the street. Now he is “guarding” the entrance to the «Tretyakov Plaza».

Author of the sculpture - Vadim Kirillov.

  • Address: Nikolskaya Street, 10
