This statue of Lenin is the real deal. It was rescued from Mother Russia by an American sculptor and now resides in the "red" Seattle neighborhood known as Fremont. I took this photo right after St. Patty's Day (notice the green lei wrapped around Lenin's forefinger). Oh, by the way, the statue is for sale. For $100,000.00 this famous Russian can be all yours.
Dasvedanya or Pog Mo Thoin - you decide.
