Very special and difficult task: a chapel in memory of Hristo Hristov – an alpinist, skupltor, wonderful and strong person, who climbed Everest 2004 and stayed up there forever …
His teacher Emil Popov and friends-sculptors have great participation in the concept and the implementation of this sacred space.
We wanted to create a jewel, sculpture in the beautiful Rhodope Mountains - stone and light, as was Christo.
