Geocache Description:


LV

Raiņa 153. dzimšanas dienā, 2018.gada 11.septembrī, pie Latvijas Nacionālās bibliotēkas fonds “Mākslai vajag telpu”, sadarbojoties ar Latvijas Nacionālo bibliotēku, atklāja Aigara Bikšes skulptūru “Divi Raiņi”, kas simboliski ietver ideju par latviešu lielumu, attīstību laikā un telpā, kā arī interesi par apkārt notiekošo. Aigara Bikšes tēlniecības darbs ir simbolisks veltījums gan Latvijas kultūrai un mākslai, gan latviešu dzejniekam, dramaturgam un politiķim Rainim jeb Jānim Pliekšānam. Tēlniecības darbā Rainis atspoguļots kā dižgars – izcila kultūras personība un latvietības ideju nesējs pasaulē. Kompozicionāli skulptūrā ietvertas divas Raiņa figūras – viena trīs metrus, bet otra vienu metru augsta –, kas novietotas uz gara soliņa. Kā izmēru attiecība starp abiem Raiņiem, tā arī fiziskais to attālums skatītāju aicina palūkoties uz individuālām un kopīgām izaugsmes iespējām, kā arī sekot līdzi apkārt notiekošajiem pasaules procesiem. Skulptūra izgatavota bronzas lējuma tehnikā, arī sola kājas izgatavotas bronzas lējuma tehnikā. Sola vidusdaļā koka sēdnes segums. Vides dizaina objekta konstrukcijas: pamatu plātne – monolītais betons; skulptūras figūras un sola kājas – atlietas bronzā, gan figūrām, gan sola kājām iekšpusē iestrādāts nerūsējošā tērauda iekšējais nesošais rāmis, tas ar stiprinājuma detaļu stiprināts pie pamatu plātnes zem laukuma seguma.
