The Moscow metro station is called ”Площадь Революции” (Ploshchad Revolyutsii) and is located on the blue line of the Moscow Metro, the central metro line of the Russian capital right next to the Kremlin. An interesting phenomenon takes place each time a metro arrives. The travelers come down for a change or to go out and by quickly passing in the central corridor, they caress the numerous
bronze statues which are there. The Moscow metro is very clean and can easily make Western tourists quite jealous about it. Let’s see the Londoner metro or the Parisian metro in comparison…
There is a mixture of religious faith and belief related to paganism. The seventy-six bronze sculptures represent various activities. Students will caress the girl who reads a book to pass their exam. These little rituals show the depth of the Russian soul and show the profound difference between the European and Russian worlds. These gestures show the countless human possibilities that exist in Russia.
The struggle of the Russian people is deeply inscribed in their collective memory.
