The Manege Square by ISIK5 The Manege Square by ISIK5
This is the State Historical Museum located in Manege Square (Манежная площадь )
The State Historical Museum of Russia (Государственный Исторический музей ) is a museum of Russian history wedged between Red Square and Manege Square in Moscow. Its exhibitions range from relics of the prehistoric tribes inhabiting present-day Russia, through priceless artworks acquired by members of the Romanov dynasty. The total number of objects in the museum's collection numbers in the millions.

The spot where the museum now stands was formerly occupied by the Principal Medicine Store, built on the order of Peter the Great in the Moscow baroque style. Several rooms in that building housed royal collections of antiquities. Other rooms were occupied by the Moscow university, founded by Mikhail Lomonosov in 1755.

The museum was founded in 1872 by Ivan Zabelin, Aleksey Uvarov and several other Slavophiles interested in promotion of Russian history and national self-awareness. The board of trustees, composed of Sergey Solovyov, Vasily Klyuchevsky, Uvarov and other leading historians, presided over construction of the museum building. After a prolonged competition the project was awarded to Vladimir Osipovich Shervud (or Sherwood, 1833-97).

And in the front of the museum you can see Georgy Zhukov's Equestrian Statue .

Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov, GCB (Гео́ргий Константи́нович Жу́ков ) (December 1 [O.S. November 19] 1896 – June 18, 1974) was a Soviet military commander who, in the course of World War II, led the Red Army to liberate the Soviet Union from the Axis Powers' occupation, to advance through much of Eastern Europe, and to conquer Germany's capital, Berlin. He is one of the most decorated heroes in the history of both Russia and the Soviet Union.

I've hardly ever seen such depth, and that goes for your entire gallery.

Well I don't really like your earliest stuff, but this is amazing, perhaps just a bit less creepy than the newest :D
