You can go to MoMA or The Louvre, but sometimes you’ll find great art where you wouldn’t expect to find much of anything.Such is the case in Western Siberia, where scientists hoping to create an eco-tourism route stumbled across a giant mosquito sculpture on a gas company’s property in Noyabrsk, Russia.
The sculpture is by Valery Chaliy, who built it on a property in Noyabrsk, Russia owned by gas firm Gazprom — one of the five largest energy producers in Russia
Noyabrsk, Russia lies in the oil fields of Western Siberia. The town has a population of 100,000. It was founded as a work settlement in the 1970s.
You'll need clearance from Gazprom security to view the sculpture. Current Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev chaired Gazprom's board of directors until 2008.
