Description

Bronze statue of Fëdorov, showing the first book printer with in his right hand a printed impression, and in his left, he supports a print board. Despite the fact that the printer was ordained to the office of a deacon in the St. Nicholas Gostunsky church in the Moscow Kremlin, the monument's author depicted him in a gown traditionally worn by city people.
