The monument stands at the intersection of Sovetskaya Street and Boulevard of Enthusiasts. The author of the monument is the People’s Artist of Russia, sculptor Alexander Rukavishnikov.
The bronze monument recreates the scientist’s figure wearing an academic gown while sitting on a cube and holding a sphere in his hands – a symbol of noosphere.
The area where the monument is erected was called Verndsky Public Garden. The location was chosen on purpose – the public garden is a symbolic “bridge” between the Old and New Tambov.
