Karl Marx Statue


"Unusual Statue in an Unusual Place"

One could be pretty surprised to find this bust of the inventor of communism in the middle of Japan's capital. But this monument is a work of the Japanese artist Ogata Sekka and in the words of the artist, the statue "is here to reflect upon the big impact of communism on the modern world in the 20th century." The extraordinary bust shows Karl Marx in an advanced age with his distinctive beard and is completely painted in pink. Underneath the monument you will find a plate saying Marx's biographical data and his famous surplus formula G-W-G'.
