St. Petersburg, Russia
 
Yusopov Palace Stairway


Just off the entry to the Yusopov Palace is a spectacular stairway. The Stairs are marble and nice, but what really makes it memorable is the detail in the cornice work and the statues inset along the walls.

There are representative statues for each of the major continents. The one shown above, and enlarged below, is an African woman.
