Boris Caragea (1906-1982) was an important Romanian sculptor, who fell in line with the iconography of the communist regime. He received numerous orders from the authorities, especially for canonic subjects such as the Statue of Lenin in București (1961, demolished) or the Monument of the Soviet Soldier in Iași (around 1960, disappeared at the end of the 90’s). In Constanța, Caragea is present with his public forum work The Monument of Victory (1960) in the Primăriei Park of Constanța, visible from Traian Street.
