Huge sculpture set up in Sanandaj's park

<p style="text-align: left;">A 15-meter high iron sculpture has been set up in the Iranian western city of Sanandaj, capital of Kurdistan province.

Created by Hadi Ziaeddini, the sculpture is situated in Abidar Park, and portrays a father carrying his two martyred children. It is Iran&rsquo;s tallest sculpture which represents Kurds' resistance during Iraq imposed war on Iraq.
&ldquo;This sculpture made of five 3-meter-high pieces of iron reflects a protest against the inhuman actions taken towards the Kurdish civilians around Iran during the war,&rdquo; Ziaeddini told the Persian service of ISNA on Saturday.
&ldquo;The sculpture was commissioned by the Foundation for Preservation of Sacred Defense Works and Values about nine years ago. I began working on its design and completed the work within two years, however, it took several years to be set up in the city,&rdquo; he said.
&ldquo;Such big projects need a team, and a friend named Masud Samimi helped me in this project,&rdquo; he said.
&ldquo;Huge sculptures are something common in other countries but have been missing in Iran. We could even make a sculpture twice as large and taller than this,&rdquo; he added.
He also said that he believes such huge sculptures draw the attention of tourists in addition to their concepts and values for the local people.
