President of the Russian Arts Academy Zurab Tsereteli can be rightfully considered the most fruitful artist of the end of the 20th - beginning of the 21st centuries. The list of his recent and future works includes 35 items, Noviye Izvestia says. The sculptor reacts to all important political and social events. Mr. Tsereteli has already advanced an initiative to create a monument to the Beslan terrorist act victims and is currently working on the monument to the victims of the tsunami in Thailand. This year Mr. Tsereteli plans to launch the construction of children's park of wonders in Nizhniye Mnevniki (Moscow's west) which will be three times bigger than any standard Disneyland. Moreover, the sculptor plans to create a monument dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the Yalta conference of the anti-Hitler coalition. A bronze sculpture of sitting Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt is expected to be unveiled in Yalta this summer. At the moment Zurab Tsereteli is negotiating with UNESCO director Koichiro Matsuura on the site of the 7-meter monument dedicated to the anti-AIDS fight, a bronze spiral with naked figures of a man and a woman. Meanwhile, the artist still hopes to unveil the Tear of Mourning 30-meter monument to the victims of the terrorist attack on New York in September 2005 in Manhattan. Mr. Tsereteli also plans to create a monument to Archimedes in Syracuse (Italy) - a huge arc with the figure of the ancient philosopher inside. In spite of the great number of the projects, Zurab Tsereteli believes that this is not an active year for him because none of the monuments will be unveiled in Moscow.
