"Armenia" in the likeness of the goddess Anahit

This sculpture was created in 1960 by Karlen Nuridzhanyan as part of the celebrations of the 40th anniversary of Soviet Armenia. Over several weeks, artists and sculptors worked right outside the building of the Union of Artists in Yerevan. As a result of this marathon (this is what we would call this event today), the sculpture “Armenia” was designed, which was soon transported to Dilijan.

Nuridzhanyan's contemporaries believe that in traits of the warlike yet tender girl, the author embodied the image of the goddess Anahit, who symbolizes fertility, motherhood, and rebirth.
