The Bronze Horseman statue was commissioned by Catherine the Great. The statue and the pedestal took twelve years to complete between 1770 and 1782. A depiction of Peter the Great riding his horse, the bronze statue is considered to be a piece of art that has intricate beauty.

The statue which is over twenty feet tall has a great amount of detailing. The artist wanted to recreate a scene with Peter dramatically rearing his horse at the edge of a cliff. The pedestal, which is known as the Thunder Stone is a natural boulder that was found some distance from Saint Petersburg. This stone is often regarded as the largest stone monolith that has been moved by man.

The stone was moved from its original location and buried to half its height in the marshy grounds. It was then modeled and shaped to resemble a cliff.
