Permian Gate is the latest work by Russian sculptor Nikolay Polissky, erected in Perm, Russia earlier this year to much fanfare. The entire object is built from hundreds of spruce logs measuring roughly 12 meters square and is shaped like the Russian letter for “P” (as in Perm) which is “П” (Пермь). (photos via finn, t-radya)
