Mikhail Bopposov, a sculptor from the village of Walba in the Tattinsky district of Yakutia, who has already managed to become famous for his manure sculptures, fashioned the symbol of 2023. The hare, also made of manure, reaches a height of 2 m. This time the sculpture is mechanized - the hare "knows" how to tap the drum with its paws.

"Manure is now in short supply for me, since I stopped running my own farm for health reasons. And today December turned out to be warm. And in order for the sculpture to bond well, good frosts are needed. But my brothers Ivan and Innokenty helped me a lot. So by the scheduled date — by December 28 — we managed. Today we have a school Christmas tree in our village", - the sculptor shared with the publication YASIA.

This is the 12th symbol of the year created by Mikhail Bopposov. All works are made of manure. In addition, the Yakut created tanks and missiles from the same material. For example, in 2018, it took him about a week of work to launch a rocket. The sculpture symbolized Russia's aspiration to space.
