 Field Marshal Kutuzov Monument  

 
 

     The monument to Mikhail Kutuzov, created by Nikolai Vasilyevich Tomsky, was established in Moscow on the 16th of July 1973. The idea of this project dates back to 1945, the year of the 200th anniversary of the birth the commander.
The bronze sculpture depicts a commander in his dress uniform riding a horse as if he examined the battlefield. Also in the sculpture you can see 26 figures of officers, soldiers, militia – all of them were involved in the fighting against the French. They embody the images of concrete historical persons conveying a portrait likeness with the characters in 1812. Among them are generals Bagration, Ermolov, Platov, Raevsky, partisan and poet Davydov.
