“Bastion”
for "Karosta Festival"
Liepāja / Latvia

My work at  an abandoned Russian Military Naval Base

Worth to mention that the sculpture is installed in Redan, a 100-year-old fortification located on an island in the middle of a river. In that place, a handful of Latvian soldiers fought and won against much greater enemy forces. Later on, it was part of a Russian Military Naval Base "Karosta". Also, the name "BASTION" means not only fortifications, but an institution, a place, or a person strongly maintaining and honouring personal principles, which definitely characterises the people of Latvia and their struggle for independence.
