     The monument to Suvorov is set on Suvorovskaya Square in 1982. To the 250th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Suvorov the USSR Ministry of Culture announced a competition for the best project of a monument to Suvorov. After two rounds of competition the further work on the monument was devolved to sculptor O.K.Komov and architect V.A.Nesterov.
      Prominent Soviet sculptor O.K.Komov was well acquainted with the biography of Suvorov. In 1967 he created a sculptural composition - Suvorovleaning over the table. Getting ready for the establishment of a new monument O.K.Komov who created images based on authentic materials and primary sources, paid great attention to Suvorov’s face. He carefully examined all the iconography of Suvorov and used his death mask. The sculptor reworked face features deeply and skillfully.
