Peter The Great

Tsar
tall, thin
carpenter
builder of ships
modernized every aspect of Russia
Government, Army and a vast Navy
supremacy
maritime
conquered
ports
cruel
selfish
devious
killed would be heirs
including his only son Alexei
A giant steering his frigate to port
exuding strength
armor clad
steadfast
Tsar

At 165 feet tall, "Peter The Great" is the seventh tallest sculpture in the world. Placed
in Moscow, near the bank of the Moskwa river.
