Marble John Lennon Monument to be Unveiled in Altai

A monument to the legendary John Lennon will appear in the Altai Territory.

      It will become the central composition of a large art complex in the tourist and recreational special economic zone Turquoise Katun.

      The monument unveiling is timed to the Russian-British Cross Year. The monument was set up about a year ago but was not available to tourists due to construction works still going on in the tourist zone.

      The monument is about two meters high.  Marble Lennon is standing on a phonograph record and is accompanied with portrayal of Yoko Ono and lyrics of the Imagine song cut in stone. The strings of his stone electric guitar and his round glasses are made of metal.  The author of the marble monument is the Russian sculptor Vladimir Voychishin, who is known for his surrealistic works of precious metals and stones.
