MOSCOW, March 11. /TASS/. Dutch sculptor Margriet Van Breevoort, whose sculpture Homunculus loxodontus became an Internet sensation in Russia under the name Zhdun, said she may create a female version of the creature.
Van Breevoort published a photo of the sculpture in progress on her Instagram page Friday, suggesting that its name will be Zhdunya, a female version of Zhdun.
The sculpture, named Homunculus loxodontus its creator, was intended to symbolize patients’ experience of waiting to see a doctor in the hope for better news and installed at the medical centre of Leiden University in the Netherlands.
The photograph of the piece went viral in the Russian social media under the name Zhdun, roughly meaning "the one who waits." It was used in many jokes, including those mocking the work of the Russian Post. In February, a man wearing a Zhdun costume appeared at an event involving the company’s management in a move that the Russian Post chief Dmitry Strashnov described as a symbol of the old postal service, which the company is set to get rid of.
