This is a statue of Mikhail Yankovsky, wth whom Juli Bryner owned the 8,000-acre Sidemi peninsula. Yankovsky was an exiled Count from Poland and renowned tiger hunter. This region was also the home of the Siberian Tiger, which, at 11 feet in length, was the largest feline on earth . . . now on the verge of extinction. Bryner and Yankovsky had their own private army to fight the tigers, Siberian wolves (also the world's largest), gangs of Chinese bandits known as Hungu'tse, or "Red Beards."
