Pedestrian Chumbarova-Luchinskogo Avenue: Visiting Sculptures

The pedestrian Chumbarova-Luchinskogo Avenue, in popular parlance called Chumbarovka, is the most picturesque street in Arkhangelsk, a real open-air museum. Here you can see old houses gathered from different parts of the city and copies of interesting wooden buildings of the early XX century. For example, the so-called Marfin House was the headquarters of the Commercial Assembly. It was here that the Soviet rule was proclaimed in the Arkhangelsk Governorate. Before the revolution, Marfin House hosted balls, banquets, card games and a game of billiards. The wooden two-story art nouveau Ovchinnikov House, built in 1912, stands out with an original corner bay-window topped with a turret above the entrance.

The Chumbarova-Luchinskogo Avenue is decorated with numerous sculptures, the most funny of which is the bronze «Arkhangelsk Muzhik». This is Senya Malina on a giant fish, a character of fairy tales by writer Stepan Pisakhov. He is dressed in a sheepskin coat, an ear-flapped hat and felt boots. The monument was erected on the occasion of the 425th anniversary of Arkhangelsk. The storyteller himself also merited a separate monument: he stands in a coat and hat and offers his hand to shake, while holding a string-bag with fish in another hand. The city people and tourists willingly shake the writer’s hand in order to attract the luck. In 2015, a Monument to Kozma Prutkov, the famous Russian author of aphorisms, was erected on the avenue. The bronze Prutkov is crowned with a laurel wreath and writes something in his workbook. His most famous aphorisms are written on the monument. Here you can also find a Monument to the Pomor Wives: a woman in a sarafan and scarf is spinning. Nearby, there is a child and a cat at her feet. The composition symbolizes the comfort created by wives, preservers of the hearth.
