Մե՛նք ենք մեր սարերը / We Are Our Mountains monument in Stepanakert, Artsakh. Also known as Տատիկ-Պապիկ (Tatik-Papik). The sculpture was erected by Sargis Baghdasaryan in 1967. It’s made of volcanic tufa and depicts an elderly couple: a Grandfather and Grandmother in Taraz (traditional Armenian garment), representing the mountain people of Artsakh. Only their heads are visible, the bodies are in the ground, which symbolizes the strong and milleniums-old connection of the Armenian people to their Lands.
