Kyiv intellectual in the form of a bronze bird, which stands on a concrete pedestal with a cane under his wing, and his head bowed.
Best of all this monument can be described by the sculptor himself: "Maybe this bird would love to fly away to warmer climes, but it so stuck here that can't do it — shame... Anyway, this image is symbolizes the Kyiv intellectuals best of all. By its nature, the Kingfisher is a very shy bird - constantly hide its head under its wing, as if it's ashamed of everything that is happening around. With my work I want to show that from the overall callousness and inertia, Kyivan intellectuals became an endangered species. But the intellectuals exist, and it need to manifest itself actively in all public affairs. It's kind of a friendly caricature that should make intellectuals think".
On a concrete pedestal with the Kingfisher-intellectual, there is plaque with the inscription: "Intellectuals — keepers of the future!".
