A MONUMENT TO BULGAKOV IN KYIV

April 8, 2008

DO YOU KNOW........


alt   The monument to the famous writer Mikhail Bulgakov was built near his house-museum at Andriyivsky
   Uzviz, 13, that is in the center of Kyiv.
The work was completed in the middle of October 2007. The author
   of the monument is a famous sculptor Mykola Rapay, who initially had prepared two variants of the
   monument.
The one was chosen where the writer is depicted sitting on the bench with folded hands.
   The cost of creating the monument is estimated in 300-400 thousand UAH.
   The idea to put a monument to Bullgakov in Andriyivsky Uzviz, next to his house-museum belongs to the
   museum stuff.
It was born long ago, but there was no funds in the state budget for this project.
   The design of the monument was first presented at the exhibition of the famous sculptor Mykola Rapay,
   but after the exhibition was over the artwork returned to the
artist's studio.....
