Elena Osipova acquired the Novovoronezh Alenka. “RAD” does not disclose any other information about the buyer.

We will remind that the monument to Alenka was ordered by the administration of Novovoronezh in honor of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the village of Novaya Alenovka, on the site of which there is a city of nuclear scientists. According to legend, the founder of the village was the girl Alenka, who came from Lebedyan, who chose this place and persuaded her fellow countrymen to move. According to the same legend, Alenka was killed a little later by the robber Kudeyar on the bank of the stream.

The sculptural composition of the founding maiden was made by blacksmiths from PI Pilipenko. The monument was solemnly opened on December 18, and three days later it was dismantled and sent to the manufacturer – the townspeople found the statue frightening. “Now I’m afraid to walk there, wind it back”, – wrote residents of Novovoronezh in social networks. The individual entrepreneur returned the city hall a million rubles received for the work, and soon put Alyonka up for auction for the same amount. The lot was named “Unique art object” Alyonushka “.
