SHERLOCK HOLMES SCULPTURE PRESENTATION
July 26 was a special day for Riga’s “Sherlock”. You already know, and the name of the hotel tells it, what our story is about. It is so fascinating and beloved, like its protagonist that we took a decision to enrich it with a new chapter. Riga and Sherlock Holmes have been long interchained in a creative and cinematographic way. The hotel owners made their contribution to this long-standing union and impressed the city with a new art object – the sculpture of the great detective. The author of the work is the Russian sculptor and graphic artist Oleg Zakomorny, Honored Artist of Russia, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Arts.
We are sure that this sculptural composition will become one of the favorite sights for Riga residents and guests, and, possibly, a pilgrimage destination for the Sherelokians from all over the world. Anyway, already now tourists cannot pass by our Sherlock so as not to touch (and literally too!) our history.
