According to an interview on Oxu.az with the sculptors who sculpted intentionally ugly Armenian soldiers chained, imprisoned, noosed, in pain, or dead at the Baku Trophy Park have expressed that their representation of Armenian soldiers was intentional. “We tried to create the ugliest representations. We usually try to do something beautiful. But now it was the other way around. It was a long and difficult process. We gave them hooked noses, flat heads, and other features,” they said.
