«Bronze Still life Composition at Stone Flower Fountain»

One of 16 bronze still life compositions with the gifts of nature from republics of Soviet Union on the granite pedestal of the Stone Flower fountain after restoration on a beautiful summer day. Created in 1954 by the architect Konstantin Topuridze, this is the largest fountain of VDNKh park and exhibition consisting of almost 988 water jets. The bowl of the fountain has the shape of a flower blooming among bright gems. To decorate the Stone Flower bowl, two types of smalt were used: colored marbled glass from opaque stained glass and multi-colored cantarel. Large-scale restoration of the fountain was carried out шт 2018-2019 for the first time in 65 years and is timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the foundation of VDNKh.
