Yerevan can surprise the occasional visitor with its abundance of public art. One contemporary example is the spider statue in the city’s Charles Aznavour Square. Dedicated to the French Armenian singer Charles Aznavour, this square boasts a number of landmarks, including the Moscow Cinema, the Stanislavski Russian Theatre, and the giant spider.
Upscale and austere, the surrounding buildings contribute to the charm of this work of art. The spider is made of recycled gears, pipes, springs, bolts, and other mechanical items. Ara Alekyan is the artist behind this installation, and he is a master at welding scrap metal together to create something new and exciting.
