Monument to Klement Gottwald (unveiled 1980, dismantled 1991), Gottwald Square, Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, 22 July 1989.

From a letter written the same day: "I finally managed to find Bratislava's Klement Gottwald monument—a huge, static, sculpture-group. It was great. There were five figures, and I kept finding new and more ponderous angles and combinations."

I read it is not fully destroyed, rather than cut into pieces and deposited.
