The rush for valuable metals continues in
Armenia with new acts of vandalism.
On September 29 a statue measuring approximately
2.5 by 2 meters was stolen from a busy part
of Yerevan's Nor Nork district. The statue,
based on themes from Charent's poem "Demented
Crowds" and sculpted in 1967 by the
notable sculptor Sergey Baghdasaryan, is
made of duralumin and this fragile work
of art has probably been dismembered already.
