The sculptor said, what should be the monument phazil Iskander

Worthy and ironic writer Fazil Iskander decided to immortalize in bronze. The monument to the classic of Russian literature would set on his home in Sukhumi, there in his honor will be called out. Yet determined the place for the monument and the timing of its creation, “MK” asked the sculptor Vladimir Kolesnikov as his professional opinion should look like a monument.

– Fazil Iskander – the storehouse of the mind and imagination, not the speaker and not the crowd, so the monument should be intimate, chamber, but it is romantic. The writer would go sitting posture. The person must be Mature (in any case not older), wise and authentic. It can absorb the traits of his main characters, or at least hints of them. The pedestal is necessarily needed: not only soaring (he’s not an astronaut!), and the average height of men, in General. But as the material would suit a young, yellowed bronze – it perfectly captures the relief, the character. The main thing – do not overdo the size of the monument: the giant is not necessary, but small for a man will not work. A little more real growth.
