What an ugly and disraspecful statue
Oct 2019
What an ugly and disrespectful statue.... This statue does nothing to properly honour the legacy of the real General Antranik, but instead totally distorts the image of the kind eyed man he actually was, into some Soviet style shirtless and unrealistically out of proportion muscle man which just looks ridiculous and disrespectful to me. I highly recommended anyone who wants to see at proper and respectful statue of Antranik visit the very nicely made one in Paris.

They are showing Zoravar Andranik as a MAN'S MAN. No shirt on wearing a cape, riding two (2) match Geldings, rearing up at the same time. The match Geldings I was told represents unification of East and West Armenia. A remarkable piece of art.

I was surprised to learn that taking photos in the metro is strictly forbidden, hence, I have no photos to share.

National hero on 2 horses
Mar 2014 • Friends
Zoravar Andranik was an Armenian general and a famous national hero. This statue is just outside the Grigori Lusavorich Cathedral ( to the left as you approach the church) on Tigran Mets Avenue. Its claim to fame apart from being a national hero comes from the sculptor - Ara Shiraz, the globally renowned Armenian sculptor who passed away last year in March 2014. An earlier poster has explained the history of the general and as mentioned the 2 horses signify west and east Armenia. The statue is obviously important for these 2 reasons but anyone passing might not get it as there are no explanatory plaques or boards. I was under the impression that as both hooves were raised that the general died in action (but from what I heard he actually died in USA not in the war). Then I realized that its just urban legend and the position of the hooves in an equestrian statue do not relate to the type of death/fate the rider suffered and if at all its a coincidence. The surrounding area could have been better looked after.

Excellent huge statue of an Armenian national hero, riding two horses, and standing guard near Saint Gregory Cathedral.

Zoravar Andranik Statue (Monument Zoravar Andranik) is an equestrian memorial of Andranik, an Armenian national hero, near the Saint Gregory Cathedral in central Yerevan. It was erected in 2002 by Ara Shiraz, an Armenian sculptor whose work can be around the world. For this statue, Andranik is sitting on two horses, symbolizing Western and Eastern Armenias.

We visited on a cold January day and area was not very busy, but the statue stood boldly against the blue sky with the Saint Gregory Cathedral -- the largest Armenian Cathedral in the world -- looming in the background.

A bit more about Andranik: Andranik Ozanian (Zoravar Andranik) (February 25, 1865 – August 31, 1927) was an Armenian general, political and public activist and freedom fighter, greatly admired as a national hero. The most famous battles of Andranik and his fedayees in that period were the guerrilla battles of Arakelots (St Apostols) Monastery of Mush (1901) and the Second Sasun Resistance (1904). Then he went to Europe and published his "Military instructions" book in Geneva in 1906. He was the commanding officer of the Armenian volunteer units, which helped the Van Resistance take control of the Van on May 6, 1915. In 1919 he left Armenia amid political turmoil and power struggles and went into exile in Fresno, California, United States. Andranik Ozanian lived in Fresno for 5 years until his death on August 31, 1927 at the age of 62. His remains were moved to Armenia in 2000, where he was buried at the Yerablur military cemetery.

LOCATION: The Zoravar Andranik Statue is located at the intersection of Tigran Mets Ave. and Khanjyan St., southwest of Luna Park, and west of Saint Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral, at coordinates 40.172373,44.514703.
