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."

  • Memorable monument, by pass, be sure to go and sfotografiruetes', the statue of a miracle.

  • 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. ..
