There are a lot of statues of Lenin. This one is a particularly good one - an evocative 5 metres tall bronze sculpture. IT was sculpted by a Bulgarian, Emil Venkov, for Czechoslovakia. After the Velvet Revolution, an english teacher, Lewis Carpenter, found the statue in a scrapyard, bought it and transported it to Seattle. Located in the quirky Fremont neighborhood, the statue is sometimes the subject of jokes. Once it was dressed up as John Lennon, at other times it was dressed in drag or as a clown.

I think this is an important statue for us. Lenin shaped Russian history and everyone else’s as well. There is supposed to be freedom of speech, so why try and suppress anything other than capitalism? We do indeed have a wonderful country and enjoy a very high quality of life. Cool statue.
Completely disgusting that this exists in our own American nation. I hope they remember there was a time in the 1950's where communism was the "root of all evil." This is a shot in the foot for all the real patriots that live in the United States and against this man, who under his regime, killed thousands and this communism is still going on in countries like China, North Korea and Cuba. Truly disappointing that they tear down REAL AMERICAN STATUES and yet they still keep THIS ONE UP!
We were heading back to the car after stopping by the Fremont Troll and the Center of the Universe Sign. It was right on the side of the road. Not sure of the history but still a cool statue to see!
Great piece of art. It's really disappointing what the place around is turning into. Nazis are people who burn books, destroy monuments and alternate history. Uneducated people who're protesting the statue are not far from ISIS. I'm not a big admirer of Winston Churchill, but his quote fits here really well: "The fascists of the future will be called anti-fascists".
A landmark of Fremont. Recommend take a local walking tour for the rich history of Fremont and its outdoor sculptures.
