Title: Request: High res photo of Romanov statue outside church in Ekaterinburg
Post by: G_Lermontov on February 21, 2008, 02:23:20 PM
Basically, I'm looking for this:

except in high resolution.  I've looked everywhere, and I just can't seem to find one.  If anyone would have what I was looking for, I figured they'd probably be here. :)

Wow, that's quite a statue. Does it include the servants, I can't tell...

Have you tried google images? There are many photos of the Cathedral of the Blood in Ekaterinburg. And, no, I think it's just the family in the sculpture, but it's only a guess.

Thanks, I will. This is the first time I realized that they even had this there...

Yes, that's exactly what I needed!  Thank you.

Thanks to you, too, Lisa.  Searching for Cathedral on the Blood yielded some new information instead of Church on the Blood, which is the search term I had been using.

This site has some nice photos of the exterior of the church and the statue of the imperial family descending the stairs

Nice pics, but I could have done without this commentary above one of them:

The Imperial Family stands defiant against the Wall Street funded Christless Bolshavik murderers. Christ be Praised.

What did/does Wall Street have to do with the events in Yekaterinburg may I ask?

Some people still blame the Jews for the October Revolution as well as the murder of the Imperial Family. While there were people of Jewish descent involved in this in Russia (Trotsky, Sverdlov, Yurovsky).  It is still thought by some that their richer brothers in New York helped finance the overthrow of both the Tsarist and Provisional Governments.
