He is sitting in relaxed pose. His left hand is setting against of the thigh. A smile is playing on his face. His legs are crossed and put forward. It seems like he sat on the chair to rest after hard but successful surgery.

Massive sculpture of the scientist was placed on big granite rectangular pedestal. There is memorial inscription on the pedestal: The professor Snegirev Vladimir Fedorovich. 1847 - 1916.
