Arno Babajanyan Statue, Yerevan

(4.6/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
See Arno Babajanyan Statue and judge for yourself if its whimsical expression deserved so much criticism from Armenia's conservative public. The statue represents a famed composer and songwriter playing a massive piano. When first revealed, the statue caused such public outcry that its creator David Bejanian was forced to modify it. He agreed to make some subtle alterations--shortening the composer's fingers and toning down his facial features--but kept the overall expression. The statue still provokes strong reactions, though the younger natives gladly take pictures with "the big-nosed man." Put Arno Babajanyan Statue into our Yerevan itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Monument to the Soviet pianist is next to Swan Lake. Sculpture attracts attention with its unusual views, or rather large hands.

  • Magnificent monument, especially it looks unusual and conceptually in winter. Effectively. But if I was a kid, he'd seemed terrible. These huge fingers. ..

  • Intricate, complex and daunting monument, as difficult all the creativity of the remarkable composer. Love that this work invokes different impressions, emotions, arguments and misinterpreted. Great and interesting job in the right place.
