There’s a strange sculpture in l’Espace Pierre Cardin in Paris: it is a featureless face hidden in part behind a veil that is held aloft by bodiless hands.
This bronze sculpture is the work of Russian artist Alexander Bourganov (b. 1935 in Baku), a National Artist of Russia and a member of the Russian Academy of Fine Arts. In 2001 his studio in Moscow was given the status of a State Museum.
His many other works include:
♦ Fountain “Princess Turandot” on Old Arbat Street (1997)
♦ Monument to Alexander Pushkin and Natalia Goncharova on Old Arbat Street (1999)
♦ Monument to Alexander Pushkin at George Washington University, Washington DC (2000)
♦Statue of John Quincy Adams, the first U.S. Ambassador to Russia and later President of the United States, located in front of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow (2008)
