Cain and Abel


Contemporary sculptural reliefs of Cain and Abel show the sculptor's thoughts about the entire history of mankind that was spent and is being spent in wars. Reliefs depict history from the primordial condition of man to the present day when men - often not understanding the reasons, simply obeying the heads of state, army, troops - kill each other, essentially for no apparent reason. Ivan Korzhev's sculpture is created not only as decorative panels that can be used for interior decoration, but as a meaningful work of history. Modern reliefs are the energy, which the author puts into sculptural forms that he creates.
