Photographer's Note

Two men taking a break from their maintenance work in the opera house in Kiev. The big man behind them is Taras Shevchenko, Ukrainian 19th century writer who has lent his name to the Kiev opera.

I quote Wikipedia:

Taras Hryhorovych Shevchenko (Ukrainian: Тара́с Григо́рович Шевче́нко, (March 9 [O.S. February 25] 1814 – March 10 [O.S. February 26] 1861) was a Ukrainian poet, artist and humanist. His literary heritage is regarded to be the foundation of modern Ukrainian literature and, to a large extent, the modern Ukrainian language. Shevchenko also wrote in Russian and left many masterpieces as a painter and an illustrator.

Another picture of the Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian National Opera House is in a workshop.
