Sculptor in Nur-Sultan creates monument to immortalize fighters against coronavirus
A monument to people at the forefront of the fight against coronavirus can appear in Kazakhstan’s capital. The project manager, sculptor Rinat Abenov, said that this is a gratitude to doctors, police officers and volunteers. He came up with the idea to create such sculpture because representatives of various professions are fighting COVID-19 pandemic in the world.
“Here I showed seven allegorical figures in high relief of the people at the forefront of the fight against coronavirus. Police officers, doctors, militaries and scientists. Here they are making medicines, here are police officers with batons, there are also media workers and volunteers,” the project manager said.
State Commission is currently making a decision about the multi-figure exhibit that is planned to be made of solid bronze ten meters high. After results are known, the sculpture will be erected at the intersection of Ualikhanov and Barayev streets. If the monument will not appear in Nur-Sultan, it will be erected in one the country’s cities.
