The statue stands six feet tall and sits near the Institute of Cytology and Genetics in Novosibirsk, Russia. According to the artist, Andrew Kharevich:
It combines the image of the laboratory mouse and a scientist, because they are related to each other and serve as one case. Mouse is captured in a moment of scientific discovery. If you look into her eyes, you can see that this little mouse has come up with something. But the whole symphony of scientific discovery, joy, “eureka” has not yet begun to sound.
The Institute hopes to create more displays to honor other laboratory animals, along with plaques containing information on exactly how each animal has helped humanity.
