Victoria - beauty Angel

The picture of the ancient statue named "Victoria" (from Rome) I took in Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.
Moscow Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts is the second-largest, after the St.-Petersburg Hermitage, collection of foreign arts in Russia. The museum was open in Moscow on the 31st of May 1912. In 1932 was named The State Museum of Fine Arts, in 1937 was named in honour of Alexander Pushkin the great Russian poet. The creation of the museum was a noteworthy event for Russia because there had not been such a precedent before. The new museum accumulated the democratic traditions of Russian enlightenment and the experience of European culture.
The exposition of the Museum includes today a vast collection of tinted plaster casts of famous ancient, medieval and Renaissance sculptures and a collection of original works of foreign artists, sculptors and graphics together with objects of decorative arts. Each year the museum has a plenty of interesting exhibitions.
It is not aloud to use flash to take photos inside the museum. I tryed to correct colors, levels and reduce a lot of noise in Photoshop for this picture, also I decided to blur background here to better show the main image.

Hiro and I recently spent three days in Moscow to attend the 2006 Cup of Russia at which a friend of ours participated. From the moment we contacted Arthur via this website, he was completely professional. Our flights arrived and left during the middle of the night, but it was no problem to Arthur to collect us and bring us where we needed to go. He even helped us check-in at our hotel and when we left he brought us right to our check-in counter. Unfortunately, we didn't have very much time for sightseeing, but we had come all the way to Moscow, so we wanted to see a bit of the city. Arthur put together a short tour to take us around to some of the major sights (Church of Christ Our Saviour, Kremlin, Red Square, GUM, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, etc.). Being a photographer, he also knew the best vantage points to get some nice pictures. He was so knowledgable about Moscow and it was great to hear his commentary about the city. He also helped us very much in shopping for souvenirs and recommending reasonable places to eat. All in all, Arthur made our stay in Moscow so enjoyable and memorable and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who visits Moscow.
