Kunstkamera: Ancestors of Cheburashka & Leopold the Cat.

On my latest trip to Saint Petersburg I visited the Kunstkamera (again), the first Russian museum established by Peter the Great in 1718 (the construction continued until 1734). Of course, me & my friends took some photos inside the Kunstkamera.

At the exhibition’s entrance I found the statues of Cheburashka‘s and Leopold the Cat‘s (popular Russian fictional/cartoon characters) ‘ancestors’ – the guards of Kunstkamera. Evolution changed them indeed. Find 10 differences! 😉
