Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson Set in Bronze in Moscow

The monument to the popular English detective characters will be set up at Smolenskaya Embankment, nearby the British embassy.
      The faces of Conan Doyle's characters surprisingly resemble the actors Vasily Livanov and Vitali Solomin who played the roles of Holmes and Watson in the legendary Soviet movie.
      All the works are financed by the city fund "Dialogue of Cultures", which has initiated the project of sculpturing popular characters of world literature. The fund is also planning to set up monuments to the Little Prince and Don Quixote in Moscow and to the three musketeers in St. Petersburg.
