Monuments adorn our country throughout its territory. Russian people have always been considered very inventive, funny, smart. What we can see in one striking example in the city of Yekaterinburg. Who believes that the monuments are remnants of the past, they are boring, then he lagged behind life.

The city has a very unusual monument. And to whom would you think he is dedicated? No - this is neither a war hero, nor a politician, or even a famous actor. The monument in Yekaterinburg is dedicated to the invisible man. You heard right. The question immediately arises, but how can it be portrayed, because a person is invisible ?! But there were craftsmen.

But it was like that. Once back in the last century, or rather, in 1999, the city’s sculptures argued that it’s expensive to finance the construction of the monument. To put a pedestal, after making it and bringing it back to the place, these are millions of rubles. But the writer Yevgeny Kasimov decided to argue with the sculptures. By the way, then he already became a deputy of the City Duma.

So, Kasimov as a creative person decided to approach the issue of the monument from a different angle. He offered to include fantasy and did not lose. Soon a brilliant, unusual idea was born - to make a simple monument to an invisible man. No sooner said than done, no matter how this idea may seem crazy.

The budget of the monument is only 800 dollars. It is a plate on which there are two footprints. And they are also not easy. Why? Yes, because they belong to two different people, and the size of the legs is also different. The monument immortalized the legs of Yevgeny Kasimov and Alexander Shaburov, who is an artist.

Here is such a famous monument that turned out to be created thanks to the non-standard thinking of the author, as well as with the help of funding from the Union of Right Forces, which needs to be given credit for evaluating creativity. Now the monument is not only a local attraction, but also a pride for people who constantly come to this place to be photographed.
