Monument to Mher Mkrtchyan, which was erected in Yerevan's Aznavour Square two days ago, has already been damaged. After noticing that a thumb came off, Yerevan Municipality employees glued the thumb back into place. On hearing the news, the sculptor Suren Melkonyan rushed to the «scene».
In his opinion, it was not someone's malicious intent. The sculptor did not rule out that all this happened by accident
Monuments to Mher Makrtchyan and Eghishe Charents in Aznavour Square are made of ceramic, but they look like bronze ones. ‘"They will withstand exposure to rain, wind, and cold for a hundred years," Suren Melkonyan assured us.
The project to set up monuments to famous geniuses in Yerevan has not yet been completed. Another seven monuments will be erected right in the city center in the near future.
