Monument to Lenin on New Earth (Cape of desire)

Artist – Pisakhov

From 1905 to 1945, Pisakhov repeatedly visited the new land as an ethnographer and artist, leaving expressive descriptions of his travels. In the notes about the first trip there is a bright episode about the Nenets idols collected in these places by the governor’s official for the Archangelian bishop. The sign of “New Arctic” – a monument to Lenin, saw by the artist in 1937 in the middle of the deserted nature of the Far North and captured on the canvas, is perceived by the new idol of these places. “To the question: „Who erected the monument?” – I was told: „All”. They put a rent in front of the residential building, offered with roofing iron, painted with red paint and a bust was strengthened on it. “. (T. H.)
