I differ Karl Marx from a monument to him. While I shudder with horror thinking about hundreds of thousands of my countrymen who perished in the communist human flesh grinder, I agree that this statue of his is a talented piece of art. This third son of a German lawyer of Jewish origin could not foresee what his Russian followers would do with their own country, after all. We were there with our grandchildren in January, during New Year holidays. Actually, we went there to admire fabulous illumination Moscow is so famous for but my elder unexpectedly wondered - Dad, is it Santa (he said Father Frost, as we do in Russia)? - Why? - I exclaimed, bewildered. - Well, he's with a beard and creeps out of an iceberg.

His ideas now completely out of fashion it is a surprise that there is still a monument to him left, apperently the only one in Moscow and all of Russia. It is a sculpture with a bust atop a plinth of grey granite, looking all natural, made in 1961 by sculptor Lev Kerbel, who like Marx was of Jewish descent. At the foot of the monument is Marx's famous exclamation: 'Workers of the world unite!'

Although many critics don’t like the sculpture I think it makes sense for the artist to have created this monument as if Marx was stepping out from the stone into a new world of ideas, but in fact unattainable in reality because each of us wants more, not the same of that what others have.

Very weak statue, mostly disliked by the Muscovites. Looks like it wasn’t completed. A head on a block of stone . Or as our tour guide explains a refrigerator
