“We Are Our Mountains” (Armenian: Մենք ենք, մեր լեռները, Menk’ enk’ mer lernerə) is a large monument north of Stepanakert(Xənkəndi), the capital city of de facto independent and unrecognized Artsakh, but de jure part of Azerbaijan. The sculpture, completed in 1967 by Sargis Baghdasaryan, is widely regarded as a symbol of the Armenian heritage of the region. The monument is made from volcanic tufa and depicts an oldman and woman hewn from rock, representing the mountain people of Karabakh. It is also known as “tatik-papik” (տատիկ-պապիկ) in Armenian, which translates as “Grandmother and Grandfather“. The sculpture is prominent in Artsakh’s coat of arms.
