Annotation

The sculpture is a symbolic tribute to the river and the city. The figures in the boat are also symbolic. The man in the back steers the ship in dangerous currents, the woman is precious cargo, a noble and beautiful queen - the mother who carries the germ of a new life, hope and the future. The third figure is a dog - the eternal companion and protector of man, he can predict danger and warn him in time. It's a life boat. For the ship and crew, the sculptor chose a simplified monumental shape based on Egyptian and Assyrian reliefs, using silhouette as the main means of expression.
