Nomination "Large Exhibition Garden" - Elena Bykova


Whirlwind of destiny

Location: Klimentovsky lane, 231

The name of the project  Whirlwind of Destiny  is represented in architectural forms and in the design of flower beds. The sundial is a symbol of time. This is the central and most stable element of the composition but, however, it sets all the rest in motion. Around it spirally turn the arches, flower beds and paths, altogether symbolizing life paths and events in human life. Everything flows and everything changes with time. The inscription on the watch Omnia transeunt et id transibit quoque (Everything goes by, and this too) and the figure of a thinking man, the image of The Thinker sculpture by Rodin, invoke spectators to meditate about it.
