Just to give you some perspective, a normal person standing on the ground would be at about the height of those first two stone levels. Those trees are tall, also giving you additional perspective. See the #2 photos for tree level.)

At one time there was an identical pedestal with a statue of Stalin alongside Mr. Lenin. That was removed during a period of "De-Stalinazation" after his death.

Just saying, for all the posters imagining Stalin statues everywhere throughout the FSU....

Ah, excellent! I went to the Communist Statue graveyard in 1999, but I wasn't sure if it was still around. I'll have to go check it out again!

In Moscow, they made a little outdoor museum of statues from Communism that had been pulled down, such as the Stalin bust seen here.

It looks like Lenin was an accomplished chess player, or his opponent knew it was better to lose.
