A monument to the victims of political repression in St. Petersburg is a monument dedicated to millions of people who suffered from state terror in the USSR. It is located before the descent to the water on the Voskresenskaya Neva embankment separating him from the legendary prison “Crosses”, which contained many political prisoners. The central element of the monument is a couple of sculptures of the "metaphysical sphinxes" of the artist Mikhail Shemyakin. Made in the spirit of modernity, they have a feature - their faces are divided into two halves vertically. To residential buildings on the embankment of the Sphinxes are addressed by profiles of young female faces, and to the prison “Crosses” on the opposite shore - exposed skulls. This symbolizes the tragic separation of the people in the Soviet years. Along the perimeter of the skirting of sculptures, there are signs with texts dedicated to Soviet repression, written by famous writers and dissidents. Between the Sphinxes there is a design of granite blocks in the form of an early Christian cross with a prison window and a thorny crown of barbed wire. The architectural solution of the monument was fulfilled by Vyacheslav Bukhaev and Anatoly Vasiliev. The memorial was opened on the initiative of the sculptor and the city authorities on April 28, 1995.

The Farnese Hercules is an ancient statue of Hercules, probably an enlarged copy made in the early third century AD and signed by Glykon, who is otherwise unknown; the name is Greek but he may have worked in Rome. Like many other Ancient Roman sculptures it is a copy or version of a much older Greek original that was well known, in this case a bronze by Lysippos that would have been made in the fourth century BC. This original survived for over 1500 years until it was melted down by Crusaders in 1205 during the Sack of Constantinople. The enlarged copy was made for the Baths of Caracalla in Rome, where the statue was recovered in 1546, and is now in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples. The heroically-scaled Hercules is one of the most famous sculptures of antiquity, and has fixed the image of the mythic hero in the European imagination.
