Recently, Robert Askarian, a sculptor from Nagorno Karabakh, participated in the international symposium of sculpture organized in the Brazilian city of Bruskve. He was awarded among the best 10 sculptures. It is worth mentioning that 184 sculptures arrived in this Brazilian city from various countries of the world to participate in the symposium.

Robert Askarian's "The Angels' Rendezvous" sculpture was chosen among the other works and passed to another stage. Robert Askarian was proud and delighted to represent Artsakh, an internationally unrecognized country, among the other countries of the world.

In 2004, the sculpture created by Robert Askarian and dedicated to the 1000th anniversary of "The Book of Mournful Songs" by Grigor Narekatsi was set in Kaunas, Lithuania. The sculptor was awarded NKR's annual award after Yeghishe Charents by the end of 2004.

The sculptor stated at the press conference that the participants and the organizers of the symposium highly estimated the Armenian culture and he was proud of representing his nation abroad.

We are hopeful that "The Angels' Rendezvous" by Robert Askarian will be given a higher prize during the conclusion of the symposium's results this summer in Brazil.
