Kristjan Palusalu the Bronze Soldier ?

Kristjan Palusalu the Estonian Olympic wrestling champion (won 2 golds in Berlin 1936) was perhaps the model for The Bronze Soldier.
Did Enn Roos craft his impressive sculpture on Kristjan Palusalu or was it as he stated at the time to the Soviet authorities “a young worker who lived nearby”?

Was Enn Roos just a craftsman or a crafty resistance man too?

The likeness is uncanny….
