Actress Lyubov Polishchuk died on November 28, 2006 at the 58th year of life. Like many other famous Russian creative figures, the artist was buried at the Troekurovsky cemetery in Moscow. Among the many tombstones, the grave of the beloved artist stands out as an unusual monument. The journalists managed to talk with its author - sculptor Alexander Tsigal.
The monument next to the grave of Lyubov Polishchuk at the Troyekurovsky cemetery immediately attracts attention - on a high granite column there is a bust of the actress made of glass, which shimmers in the rays of the sun.
According to the sculptor, the bust is made of Bohemian crystal, which was cast in the Czech Republic. The weight of the portrait of Polishchuk alone is 132 kilograms. In turn, the massive column on which it is erected has already been created in Russia. Also on the churchyard there are three crystal tablets, one of which is embossed: "People's Artist of Russia Lyubov Polishchuk" and the years of her life. The other two are decorated with floral designs. Tsigal notes that Lyubov's relatives came up with such an unusual idea of the monument.
“The work on the monument was long and difficult. Anyone who wants and who will be in this cemetery can see it, "- said Alexander Tsigal in a conversation with the journalists of" Komsomolskaya Pravda ".
Recall that Lyubov Polishchuk died at the 58th year of life from sarcoma of the spine on November 28, 2006. The actress got sick in 2000 - after she got into a serious car accident. Despite the illness, Lyubov continued to appear on stage, while using a special orthopedic corset.
