419. Mockba, CCCP



Dear Galina,

Lenin's mausoleum was designed by Aleksey Shchusev
in 1924, during a period in which the Russian Avant-Garde
was still at its peak. The mausoleum is an authentic
masterpiece of modern architectural plainness finished
with red granite for Communism and black labradorite for
mourning.

Sincerely.
R
