In 2004, a famous sculptor Vyacheslav Klykov made the «Kursk Antonovka» monument, dedicated to the symbol of his native region. It is one of his last works.
The opening of the monument on August 19, 2008 was dedicated to the Orthodox feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord. The holiday is commonly known as «The Savior of the Apple Feast Day». A 150-kilogram sculpture is a hollow copper apple, 1.5 metres in diameter and 2 metres height.
«Kurskprombank» bought the sculpture for the city of Kursk day. Then the Board of Directors, together with the City Administration agreed to place the monument-symbol. It is located between the «Kurskprombank» office and the Resurrection and Ilinsky cathedral.
