Rain – a bronze statue by Ukrainian artist Nazar Bilyk featuring a man with a gigantic glass raindrop perched on his upturned face, like a lens or maybe a crystal ball. The artist sez of it:

The raindrop is a symbol of the dialogue which connects a man with a whole diversity of life forms. The figure has a loose and porous structure and relates to dry land, which absorbs water. In this work I play with scale, making a raindrop large enough to compare a man with an insect, considering that man is a part of nature. Moreover, this work concerns the question of interaction and difficulties in coexistence of man with environment.
