Thanks to these alien babies the television tower turned into one of the most popular tourist objects of Prague.

Huge babies were thought up by the sculptor in 1994 when he lived in New - York, for the Museum of Modern Art in Chicago. However the museum did not find money for installation, and figures some time wandered on exhibitions, having managed to visit even Kiev.

the Monument opened the Monument to the pregnant woman in Tomsk in Children`s Day in 2005 near medical school (at the corner of the Moscow path and Lenin Avenue).

There is a legend that if to tie here a ribbon, childbirth will take place quietly. And women who cannot become pregnant will surely wait for the child.

The monument Starchenko wanted to thank all women for the most difficult profession - mother`s profession.
