A To start some facts. Indeed, in 2013, the statue was cast in the factory “Monumentskulptura”. Big things are cast in parts and then assembled on site; in this case, part never even collected into a single structure, all the pieces are now in Moscow, where they took Tsereteli. Now, apparently, he wanted to release a warehouse in Moscow, so he hurries statue somewhere to attach. In Sochi, failed to install, so Tsereteli decided to probe Petersburg.
With respect to authorship. At best, the “baby Ts”, which 82 years old, drew a sketch on paper, as it sculpted numerous “pomogantsy” as they are called in a professional environment, whose names are not even known at the “Monumentskulptura”. So there is a collective authorship and Tsereteli can be called, I think, only ideologist and promoter. But the idea is secondary, and the proposal to establish such a product in St. Petersburg – an exemplary absurd.
In the world there are many monuments of Christ. One of the most famous – in Rio de Janeiro Heitor da Silva Costa, opened in 1931. The height of the statue is 38 meters, height 8 meters pedestal. The monument was erected on the Corcovado mountain 700 meters high.
The monument Cristo de la Concordia on the hill San Pedro in Cochabamba, Bolivia. It opened in 1994. The height of the statue is 34 meters, the pedestal – 6 m, the total height of 40 meters. Installed at a height of 256 meters above the city, 2840 meters above sea level.
A good giant monument of Christ is precisely the case when it is set on a hill above the city and is visible from all vantage points.
I doubt that the popular character of Middle Eastern mythology is appropriate in St. Petersburg, the city of St. Peter’s, but if we put, then, of course, on the mountain. The only trouble is that such a mountain in St. Petersburg is not. There Pulkovo Heights (chain of hills, the highest – 75 meters), there Poklonnaya Hill (height 40 meters), where a monument to Stalin was, but both options for such a monument is not suitable. Pulkovo Heights to the same employed Observatory, the area around the Poklonnaya Mountain is densely built up. A monument to a height of 80 meters is needed not only the mountain, but also a space for viewing – a circle with a radius equal to the height of the monument, divided by tg 15 degrees, ie, 296 meters. Somehow, it seems that not only these mountains, but such spaces in St. Petersburg already there.
It is understood that the pedestal 47 meters high, which Tsereteli probably supposed to make at the expense of the city budget (and this in the current situation !) simulates the missing mountain. However, you can pour a mountain, and area 600 meters in diameter around her clear. But I think that the faith of the city authorities is not as strong, so they went to such a feat.
monument idea of deep secondary, which is typical for all the sculptural works, officially the outstanding Tsereteli, because he is not a sculptor and painter . Yes, in Rio de Janeiro Christ blessing the hands form a perfect cross with the body, and at Tsereteli hands raised as the soloist on the stage after a successful accommodation. But this gesture does not correspond to the Orthodox iconography, in the biography of Christ is not a single episode, which would correspond to such a gesture. In addition, it is copied from the monument to Christ the King, opened in 2010 on the outskirts of the town of Swiebodzin in Lubuskie (Poland). The total height of the monument about 52 meters (the height of the statue with a crown of 36 meters and 16 meters of height of stone and earthen hill). Putting in St. Petersburg, a copy of the monument, which appeared six years ago in the Polish province – it’s just insulting. Generally, it’s time to understand all of that monumental work Tsereteli devoid of any originality and artistic value.
Two of the monument to Christ – in Malta and around Genoa – located under water. In fact, the idea, in principle, not bad: to drown this monument. However, we have a problem with this, since the Gulf of Finland near St. Petersburg is too shallow for diving most of the year is not suitable, moreover, as a result of permanent namyvaniya muddy water in the Gulf of sand slurry.
Therefore, Tsereteli, the answer should be simple: do not need .
