The clock with the Zodiac signs

Here’s an unusual clock with the Zodiac signs on it in the Kuznechny market, used to be a very exclusive place some time ago. The clock isn’t too special, but the point is that though the market was built in the Soviet time in 1930s the Zodiac signs are on the clock. The clock of this sort above the picture of Worker and Kolkhoz Woman looks the same as the Hammer and Sickle above the Orthodox Church. Until 1917 this land used to be owned by Vladimirsky Cathedral, and here the market used to be placed.

Address: 3 Kuznechny lane.

How to reach: 3 min on foot from Vladimirskaya/Dostoevskaya metro station.

Советская эклектика. Всё-таки странно смотрятся эти звёздочки (это же именно советская звездочка, а не с неба?) и знаки зодиака. Как и в этой примечательности, удивляет такой симбиоз.

— В том-то и дело, что рабочий с крестьянином под знаками зодиака смотрятся комично ))) в том и неформат легкий )))
