Nearby there are the camels, staying at the watering hole, and the boy, who sits in the palm of a bird.

Camel - symbol of the city, appeared on the coat of arms of the district of Chelyabinsk in 1782, State Councilor Volkov wrote: "This image is given to the city as a sign of the fact that in this city the add (ie camels) with goods rather leads."

This page in the history of the city took place. Chelyabinsk was one of the tea trade centers in Russia, second only to Moscow and on the same level with Odessa, and the sculpture is reminiscent of trade "caravans" to the goods that passed through Chelyabinsk.
