Natasya, yes you're absolutely right ! But it doesn't mean that I don't like scores or that I don't respect them and the work of some talented composers.

I can understand why you wouldn't want music. It would be as if it was actually made then and there. It's more of a documentary film...as apposed to one made purely for entertainment.
Back to the subject of memorials, please see this thread:  http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php/topic,11202.0.html
Those sculptures are magnificient...I must say especially Anastasia's.

The sculptor may have made Alexei's right ear look funnier than it actually did, though most photographs seem to tend to favor his left side.

The materials for my memorial are collected but I obviously didn't get it finished by the 90th anniversary.  Stopped here to commemorate it anyway.  Am still planning and will let you know when I complete something.

This link really fascinates me, thanks to you who posted it! (It was few pages back, so I don't remember the username, forgive me.)

I have seen something recently with the same theme by two middle school students, though I think they abandoned the site.

I am wondering if something similar to both of the above ideas is possible, perhaps to be done in Spala, or at least somewhere significant in Russia? If interest was great enough, would it be plausible that the government/region officials would approve of a public monument of stones such as this? I think it would be a fantastic idea, if only people were interested.

Found some "memorials" to him in the park of Alexander Palace.

On a tree stump across from Children's Island:



Close up:



The whole family (famous one out front of AP, but it's been moved temporarily due to the restoration):



Note the icon someone's put at the top!

Not exactly a pile of rocks, but still sweet none-the-less.

Really neat!  Are the pictures just put in plastic sleeves taped to the stump, or in more permanent form?

^ I believe they were simply laminated papers taped up.


I'm doing a YouTube project about Alexei's wish to have a monument of stones. All you do is send me a photo of a pile of stones you yourself have made for Alexei. I'm hoping to compile at least one hundred (wishful thinking?) photos into a dedication video to be released on the 91st anniversary of the execution. Just sent me a picture to my inbox here, or YouTube or email me at insaneorthodoxchick89@live.com

Thanks so much to people who contribute!
