The national artist of the USSR Zurab Tsereteli plans to make until the end of the year a monument to the Russian and Soviet singer Joseph Kobzon. The cultural figure has reported about it on September 5 to the agency of city news Moscow. "Now I do a sculpture about what Iosif Davydovich has asked me during lifetime. At the initial stage I showed to her Iosif Davydovich, she very much was pleasant to him. She will represent the great actor in a suit and with the microphone in hands – such as saw him on the stage. Height of a monument will be about 2,4 m. Perhaps, until the end of the year I will manage to finish it", – Tsereteli has told. According to the artist, the monument will be cast in bronze. So far it is planned to establish a sculpture in gallery of arts of Zurab Tsereteli on Prechistenka. We will remind, on August 30 the deputy of the State Duma, the Soviet and Russian singer Iosif Davydovich Kobzon has died on the 81st year of life.
