In December 2015, the company Trimetari Consulting LLC performed laser scanning of the world-famous sculpture The Motherland Calls on Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd, Russia. The statue has a height of 85 m, at the time of its creation it was the highest sculpture in the world. To date, the work of sculptor Yevgeniy Vuchetich and engineer Nikolai Nikitin is the highest statue of Russia and Europe.
The monument built from 1959 to 1967 is the central part of the triptych, which also consists of the sculptures “Rear-Front” in Magnitogorsk and “Warrior-Liberator” in Berlin’s Treptower Park. It is understood that the sword, forged on the bank of the Urals, was later raised by Motherland in Stalingrad and dropped after the Victory in Berlin.
