Marshal of the Soviet Union Vasily Ivanovich Chuikov is buried in the area of the monument, as is famous Soviet sniper Vasily Zaytsev , who killed soldiers and officers of the German army and their allies in the battle of Stalingrad. Wikimedia Commons has media related to The Motherland Calls. It is most likely that Vuchetich sculpted the figure from the discus thrower Nina Dumbadze , and the face from his wife Vera. The huge mass and high windage of the sword, due to its colossal dimensions, caused a strong swinging of the sword under the influence of wind loads, which caused excessive mechanical stress in the place where the hand holding the sword was attached to the body of the sculpture. Two hundred steps, symbolizing the days of the Battle of Stalingrad , lead from the bottom of the hill to the monument. The Motherland Calls is highly complex from an engineering point of view, due to its characteristic posture with a sword raised high in the right hand and the left hand extended in a calling gesture.
