FYROM news: Sculptors Earn Fortunes From Revamp of Skopje (Skopje 2014: New Statue Complex Honours "Ancient Greek" Heroes)

Statue Complex Honours "Ancient Greek" Heroes

A recent report reveals the millions of euro paid in fees to the sculptors involved in the revamp of the capital called "Skopje 2014".
For the first time since the launch of the project, the government on Monday presented an official financial report, which confirmed rumours of the hefty fees paid to the sculptors.

Valentina Stevanovska, author of some of the main statues that form part of the project, including the equestrian statue of Alexander the Great, one of his father, Philip, as well as a triumphal arch, earned 2.9 million euro in fees, the report showed.

Like many of her colleagues involved in the project, Stevanovska was a complete unknown before being awarded commissions to design the grand statues.
