The monument was erected near the Museum of Military Honour of Omsk and opened on May 8, 2000. The authors of the monument are sculptor S. Golovantsev and architect M.M. Khakhaev. The monument is dedicated to Anastasia Larionova, a woman who lived in the village Mikhaylovka of the Omsk Region and whose seven sons Gregory, Panteley, Procopiy, Peter, Fedor, Michail, Nicholay had gone to the front and never come back.
Anastasia is depicted standing at the wicket in a simple garment. Her eyes are staring far away; her left hand is pressed against her heart. The dog nuzzles to bare feet of the mistress. There are seven birches behind Anastasia, which reminded of her seven dead sons.
The monument was erected without pedestal. According to the idea, it should be the same size with people and the surrounding space.
On June 22, 2002 a model of the monument was installed on her native land — in the village Mikhaylovka of Sargatskiy District.
