Great commander is presented ahorse, having drawn the reins and being half-risen, having put his hand forward, wearing his full parade dress. Famous marshal is shown on the pedestal in the heyday of his glory and greatness – in the moment of acceptance of Victory Parade on June 24, 1945.  That is why the horse has such a rhythmic, almost drumbeat, step.
