    That is not an attractive piece of artwork, but the sentiment behind it is sincere and understandable.

      I agree. They likely worked with what they had.

    TALK ABOUT HOW A SCULPTURE ENDING UP LOOKING LIKE A CRUCIFIXION. LOL! PROBABLY DESIGNED BY SOMEONE IN THEIR GOVERNMENT SPACE PROGRAM.. .RATHER THAN A CIVILIAN WITH QUALIFIED TRAINED ARTIST…. THEY’D ATTEMPT TO RULE AND MOST TIMES SUCCEED….QUALITY WORKS BY QUALITY AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION HAVE ALWAYS BEEN UNDERGROUND OCCUPATIONS…I’VE RARELY SEEN GOOD ART COMING OUT OF RUSSIA…ITS ALL SO INSTITUTIONAL. GOD BLESS AMERICA….!!!!

    with apologies for the caps…having some vision problems…
