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.
