The poet’s figure was made by Georgy Frangulyan. The sculptor expressed it in an unusual manner: it looks three-dimensional from the front and flat from the side. This is a peculiar mixture of sculpture and bas-relief.
The poet stands out against 12 depersonalized human silhouettes. He stares into the sky, unaware of what is going on the ground. So the sculptor tried to express that only a few people manage to stand out from the crowd. Joseph Brodsky was such a person.
