"Shut the fuck up, Donny! V.I. Lenin. Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov!"
Walter Sobchack

Vladimir Iljitsj Oeljanov better know as Lenin is portrayed here in a very classical stance which has come to be know as 'the thinker' after a famous statue by French sculptor August Rodin. Lenin had a significant influence on the international Communist movement and was one of the most influential and controversial figures of the 20th century. Admirers view him as a champion of working people's rights and welfare whilst critics seem him as dictator who carried out mass human rights abuses. 

Although there are quite a few statues of Lenin out there this pose is really rare and quite interesting. We like it a lot for it's sculptural quality and the fact that it is quite a contemplative stance for this highly controversial figure. Please do not think to long about this one of a kind statue as this might be the result of that.
