Abstract

The well-known image of Tigran the Great of modern drams occupies a central place in monumental sculpture as well as high-sculpture iconography. While creating round statues, sculptors-engravers depicted Tigran the Great in their own way, dressing him in imitation of the clothes of the famous Roman rulers of the time. The sculptors did not even protect the well-known portrait from the dram: they were guided by their own ideas. In that sense, the episodes are more conservative. In their high sculptures, Tigran the Great has a recognizable image and repeats the image on the drams. Among the Armenian artists, the statues of Tigran the Great were created by the Tokmajian family. In their works, the image of the king is more symbolic than concrete.

The statue "Tigran, King of Armenia" created by Matteos Lespagnandelli (17th century), differs in form and content.

The high-value sculptures of the Armenian king depicted on the obverse of Tigran the Great drams are original works of art.

The article discusses the image of Tigran the Great in sculptural art. Based on the historical and chronological comparative analysis of the works, an attempt was made to understand the features of the works depicting Tigran the Great.
