A three-meter bronze monument will be erected on the grave of singer Yuri Shatunov. On June 26, the director of the artist Arkady Kudryashov told Izvestia about this.
“We took a place on purpose so that a part of him would be here. He was a patriot of the country. This is a legend, this is a block. He didn’t want to be so pompous, he was a very modest man, very. We made a decision that there was a place where people could come, ”said the manager.
He expressed a desire that the monument be three meters high and occupy the entire area of the grave, located at the Troekurovsky cemetery.
“We plan to erect a full-length bronze monument. He deserved it. In a year we want to announce a competition, we will choose a sculptor. We want to put a three-meter monument right on the entire grave, ”said Kudryashov.
He also said that Shatunov enjoyed the sincere love of the Russians, which could not be bought.
“What he did for Russia, for the stage, for culture, is shown by people’s love. It is impossible to buy it for any money, for any rotation, or for any ethers. Either it exists or it doesn’t,” the director added.
The ashes of Shatunov will be partially buried in Germany. According to Kudryashov, the singer himself asked for cremation during his lifetime. Until now, the artist’s family has lived in Germany.
