Sculptors were provided with workshops and all necessary stock, and based on the sketches chosen by the symposium organizers beforehand, art works were created,  later to adorn a park zone of Baku. The organizer did not constrain the sculptors within the framework of one topic, giving them the freedom of self-expression, while requiring to follow the basic conditions – the works will be displayed in the open air.
