The clock’s sculpture group was modeled after the monument “To the citizen Minin and the Prince Pozharsky from the thankful Russia” by the famous sculpture I.P.Martos. The monument was dedicated to the victory over the Polish intervention in 1612 and to the bicentenary of the Romanovs Dynasty on Russian throne. Although the first bronze clocks were cast in Paris, their popularity in Russia resulted in the launch of casting of similar clock at Russian bronze-casting factories from 1830
