In number for November, 30th « » has published a material that in Rostov, on street Pushkin (around the cinema House), will establish a monument to Vladimir Vysotsky (more in detail on/ 9402). We have placed sketches of the future pedestal in the newspaper and have asked readers to vote for the variant which has pleasant to them up to December, 12th. As it was found out, rostovchane remember and love creativity of the known amateur performer - people called in edition «» sent hundreds letters, and also SMS - messages on editorial number. In total 600 persons have taken part in voting nearby. Today we sum up.

We have asked the initiator of fund raising on a pedestal to Vladimir Vysotsky Lyudmila Skvortsovu to comment on voting results:

- Certainly, results of voting of readers «» we will consider at a definitive choice of the sketch. However, at our initiative group the opinion concerning all four variants. So, that sketch which at your readers was beat out on the first place, was not pleasant to us. As far as I know, Vysotsky only time acted without a shirt. It was in the summer during a concert in Leningrad region - spectators sat in a hall without vests, and the bard too by the performance end remained in one jeans. As the author of work Anatoly Sknarin has explained to us, a naked torso he tried to show intensity and concentration of the singer, but, in our opinion, it has not absolutely turned out. It would be more successful to display emotions on Vysotsky`s person.

the Variant 1 which at you on the second place, too is ambiguous. We want to establish a monument to Vladimir Vysotsky as to the author and the executor of the songs, instead of offered under the version of sculptor Dmitry Lyndina Vysotsky - to the actor.

the Sketch, which readers «» have put on the third place, the Stavropol sculptor George Mjasnikov has made. Vysotsky never at mature age carried a coat, only in the childhood. The unique photo on which it in a coat - this picture is made in London was saved. He loved short jackets, polo-necks, such clothes in which it is convenient to play a guitar.

And the variant 2, by and large, is fairly put on last place. A monument Sergey Oleshnja sees such. In - the first, Vysotsky seldom sat on a chair during performances. It was the motor, instead of the person! It it is constant where - that flied, hurried, the singer and slept only 3 - 4 hours a day. And in - the second, here there is not enough similarity - Vladimir Semenovich though was low growth, but had an ideal figure. In this sketch there is no highlight!
