It is very much like a live actor who played this role. At the same time, it excellently reflects the person described in a famous book.

A nice sculpture to depict a humorous character of a novel. Unfortunately the place is far from the city centre. I stayed at Dnipro Hotel and it took more than half an hour by car to reach there.
