Monument to Avicenna

A rich unique heritage

Avicenna owns more than 450 works in the most diverse scientific fields, including philosophy, astronomy, chemistry, psychology, literature and, of course, medicine. It is difficult to imagine anyone else who contributed so much to the development of medicine as Abu Ali ibn Sina. His main medical works are the Canon of Medical Science, The Canon of Medicine, Drugs, The Book of Healing, and many others that are still popular among modern doctors.

Architecture of the monument

The monument to the great scientist is made of bronze. The sculptor V. Aksenov and the architect S. Adylov were engaged in its production. The sculpture turned out to be quite large and massive and represents Avicenna sitting on a small hill, dressed in a traditional loose shirt. In one hand he holds a book - a symbol of his many years of work.

In addition to his rich academic work, Avicenna is associated with honesty and the desire to improve the world. In his honor a lot of monuments have been built in different countries, dozens of medical centers, institutes and streets all over the world are named after him, and the Avicenna Museum functions in the village of Afshana (30 km from Bukhara) where he was born. All this proves the colossal role of the scientist in the improvement of many spheres of science and his enormous contribution to our life.
