BEIRUT. – Sculptures have become rare in Lebanon these days. Only one out of 10 exhibitions displays sculptures, Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star reports.

This month Eskis Gallery organized an exhibition of known Armenian architect Mkrtich Mazmanyan. During the exhibition entitled ‘The Ladies of Beirut’ semi-abstract bronze sculptures of female will be displayed. The artist is known as a professional of public monuments and portraits. In this exhibition 20 pieces of his work are presented. He calls his style ‘Shaped abstraction’. The artist studied sculpture in Armenia before moving to Lebanon 20 years ago. According to him, he grew up in a home full of women. Then he raised three daughters.

“For me woman or mother does anything. They are more productive than men. If women were to disappear from the world then there would be no progress,” the artist said.
