E.V. Vuchetich worked over the bust in Rostov, where the writer came for the meeting with his electors. The sculptor recollected: “Mikhail Alexanrovich and I met in the hotel “Moskovskaya”. Sholokhov said humorously: “If I have decided to get myself perpetuated, let’s begin then. And we’ll see what will come out…” It was difficult to work. All the time Sholokhov was visited by people, and Mikhail Alexandrovich talked with them for a long time. He also went to the meetings with the electors. Usually I could begin working over the portrait only late at night. We talked with Mikhail Alexandrovich discussing literary and other subjects. Sometimes our talks went far long over midnight. The work over the portrait lasted several days, to be more exact, several evenings and nights. I am happy that my dream has come true”.
