As someone who is looking forward to the new Conan the Barbarian movie (in theaters Aug. 19, 2011), it would be no surprise that one of my favorite works of Soviet art is the 25-foot-tall monument to Vladimir Mayakowsky that stands in a Moscow park. Like Conan, the people’s poet is a larger-than-life hero, and like Conan he’s a complete fantasy.
