The organizers said this year’s edition is really large-scale.

Sculptures occupy almost the whole territory of the island and weigh several dozen tons.

The heart of the exposition is a sculpture of two knights, participants of the Battle of Nemiga – the first mention of Minks in historical chronicles.
