I still have trouble deciding if the face is peering out from inside a rock, or if the person is wearing some large hood-like thing on their head.

I vote hood, seeing the fold at the bottom, but that's just me.

Two statues, one in the modern hyper-realistic style, the other, perhaps it's as well it isn't a totally realistic portrayal.

I think this whoever-he-is was posted here a couple of years back, but he's standing in for me not having a recent image of a statue.

I haven't visited this thread for a while.
Some interesting stuff.
The suffragette in Wales is striking.
Ivan, who is the machinegun toting lady and where is she?
Excuse me, the question was not sent to me, so I answer when I saw it in the thread. This is Moscow, I was there just on May 9, one of the parks. I don't know the history of creation. The time is supposedly 5-7 years after the war. It seems to me that the original installation site was different. Who is she, I suspect that she is a Komsomol member, a fighter against fascism.

This sweet, gentile young woman is the personification of something, I suspect "industry" because she is holding in her lap, anachronistically, a large gear wheel. There was no label on the base of the statue, and although I've found images of it on line, none have indicated what she's supposed to represent.

She looks rather unhappy--like she's contemplating the need to rebuild that transmission.
