Mother Armenia, Gyumri

The Mother Armenia monumental statue (Armenian: Mayr Hayastan) is a female personification of Armenia, located in the city of Gyumri. It looks like the monumental complex of Mother Armenia in the capital Yerevan. It was erected in 1975 on a hill west of Gyumri city.
It was designed by the architect Rafik Yeghoyan and sculpted by Ara Sargsian, Gaspar Gasparyan, and Yerem Vartanyan.

It features the victories of the Armenians, namely the Soviet victory in the Second World War. The proudly standing Armenian woman statue symbolizes the victory holding wheat spikes in her hand. The monument is made of bronze and is the biggest monument in Gyumri.
