Synopsis

The sculptor Khachatur Iskandaryan was born in Yerevan, 90 years ago. He saw old Yerevan with its diny, winding streets, its humble, poor people, the so called Ghantari Tak market, the first tram on Astafyan street The city changed in front of him: constructions, squares, dwelling houses all around... But first of all it's the people who represented the image of our city that remain in his memory very brightly. He immortalized them all in his sculptures, which though being small have never humiliated the posers. So the city gets older, and the sculptor with it, whose memories are closely connected to Yerevan.
