Celebrated Ukrainian actor Stupka will be honoured with statues, postal stamps

Celebrated Ukrainian actor Stupka will be honoured with statues, postal stampsThe legendary actor will be honoured with two monuments, post stamps, and coins, VESTI reports.

August 27 could be the date of Bohdan Stupka’s 75th birthday, who died from cancer in 2012.

Stupka’s son Ostap said: “The monument is already finished and awaits its transportation from Odessa to Kyiv. As it was initially planned, the 1,6 meter monument represents a bronze tree with its roots turned up and will be placed on granite slab. It was mastered by Mikhail Reva, a sculptor from Odesa who has also been a friend of my family. The slab itself will be a compilation of Bohdan’s portrets, including his theatre and film characters that will be engraved by using computer-aided technologies.”

The stamp with the portret of Stupka will be released in the beginning of autumn.

The National Bank of Ukraine will release a commemorative coin. However, its nominal value remaines unknown.

The second statue will be mounted at the entrance of the Ivan Franko theatre representing a full-height posture of the actor.
