The most famous statue in Saint Petersburg, the former capital of Russia, is known as the Bronze Horseman. It's a grand work, having inspired poetry by Russia's greatest writer, Alexander Pushkin. Symbolizing Russian imperial glory, it's a credit to its city.
Now, after centuries of envy, the city of Zheleznovodsk in southwest Russia has emerged to unveil the Golden Enema Bulb.
What could be a better symbol for the glory of Russia under Vladimir Putin? Surely poetry will follow.
