In a recent ceremony at the Russian embassy in Beijing, two sculptures portraying the renowned Russian novelist Maxim Gorky (1868-1936) and his Chinese counterpart Lu Xun (1881-1936) were unveiled. The event not only commemorated the historical connections between the two cultures but also symbolized the anticipation of future extensive cultural exchanges.

Crafted by Wu Weishan, the esteemed director of the National Art Museum of China and a renowned sculptor recognized for his depictions of prominent figures both domestically and internationally, the full-body statues pay homage to the legacies of Gorky and Lu Xun.

Wu emphasized that both Gorky and Lu Xun occupied pivotal positions in history, shouldering the responsibility of guiding their people toward a brighter future and progress through their literary works. These sculptures serve as a tribute to their enduring influence and the enduring bond between Russian and Chinese cultures.
