Site engineer Khayyam Huseynov told APA that the park covered more than two thousand square meters. "Construction work began a month ago and we will complete the work in the next three days".
The statue was sculptured in Uzbekistan on order of Baku Executive Power, but its plinth was prepared in Azerbaijan. "9 tonnes of bronze were used in sculpturing the statue and plinth was prepared from the marble".
The park is located in crossing of Azadlig Avenue and Najaf Narimanov Street. President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov, who will visit Azerbaijan on 11 September, is expected to attend the statue’s opening ceremony.
