Padomju laiku arhitektūras elements



In Soviet times, official ideology propogated that every man and woman have to be an overman, especially in work. That's why humans in most of monuments, sculptures, mouldings and other public artwork were portrayed like supermens. It was meant to inspire every Soviet citizen to do their best to build a flowering (communism) state. Needless to say, it didn't worked. People here aren't Chinese whose love to work and sense of common benefit is based on much older system of values. Personal ambitions, private interests prevails here.
