titleMotherland Calls
locationVolgograd, Russia
infoThe Motherland Calls is the central figure of the monument-ensemble "Heroes of the Battle of Stalingrad". This is one of the tallest statues in the world. The allegorical image of the Mother was used by the sculptor to reflect the full depth of our people's senses, and the urgency that the people rose to fight to the end in defense of their land, their families. Each year, Mamayev Kurgan is visited by many tens of thousands of people. All who visit get the feel of history, and learn a lot more about the Great Patriotic War fought desperately here. For those of you who want to understand and feel the course of history, to see with your own eyes a great battle place and feel the power of this spot, then you should definitely climb the Mamayev Kurgan.

disposal For the first time, the secret of this photo was a mystery for me. I couldn't find a word to describe my feelings. But now I've found a sense. There are not just architectural structures on this picture. Great woman statue, domes of the church, industrial tubes - all of them have spires aiming at the sky (as if they seek responses to the eternal issues ). And these lightnings are like long-awaited answers from the Sky, which have come on a wonderful day after patience long endured. From other hand, lightnings looks like the visible expression of the meaning and character of the structures. It emphasizes the meaning of the 9th of May.  +29
