Vincent van Gogh with a Bottle Monument Appears in Omsk

A sculpture of Vincent Willem van Gogh with a bottle has been set up near Bevitore Restaurant in Lenin Street in Omsk.
      As the sculptor Alexander Kapralov said, the work had been ordered by the restaurant owner. It is following the concept of the customer that Van Gogh - who liked to drink - has been depicted with a bottle.
      The sculpture is made of ferrous metal, and then coated with special paint; its weight is about 200 kg- Alexander Kapralov reported. Next to the sitting figure of the artist there is a bottle and a glass.
      Earlier near the restaurant there was a sculpture of the main character of the film La leggenda del santo bevitore played by Rutger Hauer. The Bevitore (translated as a person liking to drink) Restaurant was actually named after this film.
