Zurab Tsereteli Sculptures Battle of Poltava

President of Russian Academy of Arts Zurab Tsereteli has sculptured a composition Battle of Poltava.
      
      In an interview for "Novye Izvestiya" newspaper he explained: It is such a big monumental ensemble on historical theme. Presently history is very close to me; both my education and upbringing help me create suchlike monuments to historical figures. It is not reported how the sculptor is going to dispose of the new sculpture composition. The 300th anniversary of the Russian armys victory over the Swedes will be marked in 2009.
      
      In January 2009 Zurab Tsereteli will turn 75, and the interview is timed to his jubilee. The sculptor mentions in the interview that he dreams of erecting a statue of Christ 33 meters high - according to the years of Jesus earthly life. Unlike the Brazil sculpture my Christ will be holding his hands not spread apart, but directed towards people - emphasized he.
