Russian Workers at Baumanskaya

While wandering around Moscow today, some new friends and I ended up in the Baumanskaya metro station on our way to lunch.  According to Wikipedia, this metro station is named after a revolutionary named Nikolai Bauman and was built in 1944.  The central hall is lined with bronze statues in niches and I snapped a picture of this one:
