The original granite statue is a part of the famous memorial complex on the Mamayev Hill. Like the rest of the complex, it was designed by a group of sculptors and architects led by Evgeniy Vutetich and built in the 60s. The "Two Soldiers" statue is one of the six of similar size standing at the foot of the giant Motherland Calling to Arms.

The original granite statue is a part of the famous memorial complex on the Mamayev Hill. Like the rest of the complex, it was designed by a group of sculptors and architects led by Evgeniy Vutetich and built in the 60s. The "Two Soldiers" statue is one of the six of similar size standing at the foot of the giant Motherland Calling to Arms.

There is a stamped maker's mark "5" on the bottom. The left side of the plinth is engraved "Volgograd. 2.2.1968". The inscription on the right side reads: "On the day of the 25th anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad, from the personnel of the Spetsenergoremont (Special Electrical Repairs Enterprise.)". The front side has engraved dates 1943 and 1968, and the name of the recipient "E.A. Pepelyuk". The statuette was apparently given to him as a gift in commemoration of the victorious conclusion of the Battle of Stalingrad. In all likelihood, he currently lived in Volgograd and worked at the enterprise or possibly just visited the city for the celebrations of the anniversary.

The statuette is in excellent condition. There are no noticeable dents, dings or scratches. The toning to the silumin is nice and even, without blemishes. This statue is of one of the lesser known parts of the Stalingrad memorial, and its Soviet-era replicas are rarely available for sale.
