Arno Babajanyan Statue, Yerevan
(4.7/5 based on 30+ 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.

  • This review is quite late. I notice that everywhere in Armenia you will always find a statue or two and here at the Freedom Park Arno Babajanyan's Statue is located.
