Soviet Mosaics in Ukraine

V. Chornovil avenue, 39

On the wall of the building on V. Chornovil avenue, 39 in Lviv until 2017 was a mosaic with the hutsul playing on a trembita, a woman in national dress, who meets bread-salt and male-worker; below was the inscription: "Glory to the builders of communism!"

At the time of the creation of the first picture (2017), the mosaic was completely closed by the neighboring new building.

Only thanks to the archival photographs of the 60s of the twentieth century it is possible to reconstruct a mosaic panel, which was on the wall of building which was built in the second half of the nineteenth century.
