Arm and Hammer and Sickle

Close-up detail of the Rodina Mat (Mother Motherland) Statue in Kiev. Yes, it's humongous. I've heard it said that this statue is the Soviet answer to the Statue of Liberty, just on a larger scale. If so, I'm wondering why they put it in Kiev and not in Moscow. Maybe they have a larger one in Moscow? I don't know. I do know that it's not the only Motherland statue in the former USSR.
