In Ekaterinburg, outside the Church on the Blood, there is a statue of the Imperial Family descending the stairs into the cellar of Ipatiev House. There is also a stattue of Ella, I think in Moscow at the Convent of SS Martha and Mary, and I understand there is a statue or two of the Emperor as well.

Here is a thread about a fairly recent statue based on or inspired by OTMA:

Wow, it's not what I imagined, but haunting still. :o  This will probably sound naive, but if they are going down to the cellar, why are there two (three?) girls facing away at the top?

Probably some symbolism from the artist... I'm not really sure.
