Monument to Waiting Woman

The Murmansk families have long been divided by the surf line – men went to the ocean, and women waited for them on the shore, hoping that the sea would return the bridegroom or the father of the family. An amateur poet Viktor Timofeev, the navigator of the fishing seiner, wrote a poem “Sentimental Watch” in 1970, where he expressed the idea of ​​the monument to the Waiting – a symbol of boundless female love and devotion. The first attempt to erect the monument was in 1984, but perestroika began, and there was no money. And only in 2012 the grand opening of the monument took place according to the project of Smolensk sculptors Igor Chumakov and Yuri Anushko.
