The Arbat Faces project approved by the public council under the Mayor of Moscow intends to restore images of people who lived on Arbat street 100 years ago, the Moscow City Hall told RIA Novosti. Sixteen bronze sculptures of the most vivid images of pre-revolutionary Moscow will be unveiled on Arbat Street. The life-size sculptures of a newsboy, a bagman, a grammar school girl, a governor-general and his wife, etc. will be set along the street. Sculptures of literature heroes, for instance, Pierre Bezukhov (the main character of Leo Tolstoi's War and Peace) and characters of Anatoly Rybakov's novel The Dirk, associated with Arbat can appear on the street. Alexander Pushkin, Andrei Bely and Bulat Okudzhava used to live on Arbat Street. Characters of their verses can be sculptured on this street, as well.
