Central Railway Station, Mosaic with Sofia Coat of Arms
Mosaic with Sofia Coat of Arms by Atanas Yaranov, 1974
The mosaic is made of natural stone in monochrome colors. The dark color palette matches the colors in the Sofia coat of arms, which stands in the center of the mosaic. The differently colored intertwined lines imitate railways and so create a dynamic impression. The tesserae are aligned with precision and geometric accuracy. Atanas Yaranov combines schematic construction and an accurate reproduction of Sofia’s coat of arms.
The mosaic panel is situated high above the floor level and requires the viewer to appreciate it from a distance.
