Book Bison Settles in the National Library

The interior design of the National Library has become even more interesting today. The Book Bison has settled in the lobby.

The sculpture "Zubr" (a Bison) is both a symbol of Belarus and the embodiment of a strong typographic tradition of our ancestors. The art object is made of parts of old printing machines and typographic fonts and decorated with letters of the alphabet, among which you can find the Belarusian “ў” and "i". So the “nationality” of the Book Bison is out of question.

The sculpture in hi-tech style is created by designer Gennady Kotlin as part of the author's project of Vladimir Likhodedov "In Search of the Lost." Alternatively, it is called "The Aleph," the name of the first letter of ancient alphabets, which is derived from the Egyptian hieroglyph in the form of a bull's head.
