A map of Karabakh made of three thousand pieces was showcased at the first Azerbaijan International Exhibition "Restoration, Reconstruction and Development of Karabakh-Rebuild Karabakh".
Work on each piece lasted for a month. The map's parts were specially cut out of marble. All geometric shapes and various patterns were glued with a special substance. Each piece weighs from 200 to 450 kg.
In the process of creation, the actor used various types of marbles from Greece, Italy, Turkey, Iran, Ukraine, Zimbabwe, etc.
Notably, Nariman Abdul-Aliyev is also a production engineer, who trained in Turkey as a hydro-abrasive metal arc cutting specialist.
His spouse, art critic Zemfira Abdul-Aliyeva, architect Ali Valiyev and marble specialist Veli Valiyev also contributed to the artistic part of the exhibition.
