The Gate of Perm installation is a stunning balance between chaos and order. Created out of hundreds of spruce logs, which are left as rough and rugged as if they were just plucked off a forest floor, this sculpture is arranged in such a way as to almost negate the natural materials used. Nevertheless, the overall result is a unique give and take vision between man and nature.

Created by Russian sculptor Nikolay Polissky, who is famous for creations cobbled together out of humble local materials, the Gate of Perm installation is located in the city of Perm, hence its name. Erected earlier this year, the Gate of Perm measures about 12 meters square and is shaped like the Russian letter for 'P,' which conveniently looks like a strong monument when realized off the page.
