About the Artist

Когда приходишь к Бахчисарайскому фонтану, почти слышишь название стихотворения Пушкина. Само стихотворение, конечно, не помнишь. Зато хорошо помнишь эпиграф Саади, который использовал Александр Сергеевич: «Многие, так же как и я, посещали сей фонтан; но иных уже нет, другие странствуют далече.» Рядом с самим фонтаном небольшая скамейка и окно формы пчелиных сот, похожее на фасетчатый глаз. Видишь, Саади, почти всех нет.
