The king of the forest

In 1966 the family of the Armenian sculptor Ara Sargsyan rested on the slopes of a forested mountain in Dilijan, at Aghasi Khanjyan's government summer cottage. When walking near the cottage, the sculptor noticed a huge tree and decided to give it a "human form".

This is how a very unusual sculpture “The King of the Forest” was created, which blended with Dilijan forests. The forest king or forest deity, by spreading his arms wide and as if embracing the whole forest, protects the forest inhabitants from all kinds of evil spirits.
