A GAZE FROM WITHIN
What does Pobednik see?
- What was he supposed to see, that is a better question. Society with a dream of prosperity. City that never came to exist.The supposed new capital of a new nation.
The site was chosen…
- A place for each citizen to feel like home.
A place with no history?!
- A place determined by weak soil, left blank, unbuilt; making the efforts of building a new city upon it even more heroic.
Or even more symbolic… So, a place with no history of settlements, than?
- But a great history of warfare…
Wasn’t monument of Pobednik erected to celebrate peace?
Holding a sword and a dove, It is a monument to all the wars and a monument to everlasting peace.
