November, 20, to celebrate Maya Plisetskaya's 91st anniversary, a monument of legendary ballerina has been opened in Moscow!

Sculptor Victor Mitroshin knew his model very well and had re-created her in bronze several times. This time he used help from Rodion Schedrin, Maya's husband and composer of many beautiful ballets, including "Carmen Suite" in which she created one of her favourite parts - this image was used for the statue.

Architects of the project: Alexei Tikhonov and Vasily Perfiliev.
The monument is placed in Maya Plisetskaya's square on Bolshaya Dmitriovka.
