Arno Babajanyan Statue, Yerevan

(4.5/5 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.

  • Frankly speaking, the attitude of the citizens have this sculpture is ambiguous. Older people, many who saw live performances of the famous composer, cannot accept his way in a very modernist terms. and for the guests and young people is another beautiful place in Yerevan.

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