A Moscow exhibit has caused controversy by displaying a statue of the Soviet Union founder Vladimir Lenin that breathes.

Displayed in a dark room meant to replicate Lenin's famous Mausoleum in Moscow's Red Square, the mildly animated model made of wax is causing quite a stir among visitors.

The Mausoleum in Red Square, where the real embalmed body of the Soviet dictator lies, was recently closed for repairs and is expected to be reopened at the end of April.
