King Gagik´s church II

One of Gagik’s principal projects was the Church of St. Gregory in Ani (1001–10), loosely modelled on Zvartnots. During Nicholas Marr’s excavation of the city’s ruins in 1906, a 2.26-meter high statue of King Gagik holding a model of his church was found in fragments.[8] It shows Gagik wearing a turban on his head and a khalat, which indicates that he was recognized by the Abbasid Caliphate.[6] The statue was originally located in a niche high up in the north facade of the church. It was lost in uncertain circumstances at the end of the First World War. Only a few photographs record its appearance.
