"Genii of Machinery"
One of the bas-reliefs by Haig Patigian on the columns in the entrance to the Palace of Machinery. They represent the Genii of Machinery. The closed eyes suggest blind force, the power that comes from within and that is directed by intelligence. The figures and the spreading wings are decoratively used to indicate powerful support. Their modelling follows the curvature of the columns and is well done. between the figures stand symbols of machinery.
