Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov (1 December [O.S. 19 November] 1896 - 18 June 1974) was a Soviet Red Army officer who became Chief of General Staff, Deputy Commander-in-Chief, Minister of Defence and a member of the Politburo. During World War II he participated in multiple battles, ultimately commanding the 1st Belorussian Front in the Battle of Berlin, which resulted in the defeat of Nazi Germany and the end of the War in Europe. Zhukov ultimately held the rank of Marshal of Soviet Union. [Further reading].

This 30 cm bust dates from 1976 and is made from metal, with a fantastic detail work with fully recognizable rank and awards. The bust carry Zhukovs signature and is also signed with the artists name - Baganov - and meet the highest standard of top contemporary artists of the Soviet Union. Further interesting is the NVA - East German Peoples army - inventory tag. The bust depicts MSU Zhukov wearing his M1954 Marshal of the Soviet Union parade uniform and among the awards can be seen the four Hero of Soviet Union gold star medals as well as Zhukovs Marshal star and his ribbon bar. Likely this bust has been in the office of a high ranking East German general or army official. While busts of Lenin and Stalin are quite common, high ranking marshals are more seldom seen available in the market.
