Arsenyevs (a scientist, prominent explorer of the Russian Far East, and a distinctive writer) which is about 4 meters high. 
    Close to the statue there is a memorial rock with a bas-relief of Dersu Uzala (the character from Arsen'yev's novel, real person) on the front and udege (local minority name) ornamental pattern on the back. This memorial was constructed with the help of the funds collected by the people of Arsenyev and members of the scientific community of Russia to commemorate V.K. Arsenyev for his centenary.
