The bronze monument of Igor Talkov installed in the town of Shchekino became the first Russian full-length monument to this musician. The memorial was solemnly opened on July 15, 2017 in the Palace of Culture town park.
The bronze monument of 4.5 meters standing on a marble pedestal was created by sculptor Vladimir Kazantsev. He noted that this is the first Russian monument to Talkov in full-length. In addition to singer's figure standing in a characteristic stage costume with a bare chest and a massive cross on it the composition contains a chair, a guitar and a huge sheet of paper with a recognizable quote that looks like it was punched with a knife: “I do not dare to predict, but I know for sure that I will return.”
