LOOK: "Requiem" (2006) by Zenoviy Pidperygora

This image is from a show at Dzyga, Lviv Art Photo. The monument in the background is called Wave of National Rebirth. It is in the center of the main boulevard in Lviv, Schevchenko, named after Ukraine's national poet. Accordingly, he is the centerpiece of the monument, with a "wave" of reliefs representing Ukraine's people and history flowing out from him. The lamps in the foreground are funerary candles. The photo was taken on the anniversary of the Ukrainian genocide, Holodomor (Great Famine).
