September sees launch of stone sculpture park in Grodno, following open-air carving event in Pushkari village

Six Belarusian sculptors, including famous Grodno craftsman Vladimir Panteleev, took part, creating beautiful works of art. Mr. Panteleev is the driving force behind the event, which was recently held for the second time. The bounty is being donated to the city of Grodno, including sculptures entitled ‘Inception of Belarusian Land’, ‘Perun’s Stone’, ‘The Litvin Warrior’ and ‘Dialogue of Centuries’. One piece shows a medal depicting Saint Hubertus Deer, the symbol of Grodno, inscribed ‘Grodno — Belarus’ Cultural Capital 2014’.

The craftsmen of the first session also donated several sculptures, which now decorate Grodno streets, including a representation of Russian folk puppet Petrushka (which stands near the Grodno Regional Puppet Theatre) and Gorodnichanka (installed in a public garden on Dzerzhinsky Street).

The new park of stone sculptures is destined to become a special cultural site, located near Kolozha (St. Boris and St. Gleb) Church; it should receive new exhibits with each open air sculpting session.
