On the wall of the Võsu beach house in Lääne-Viru County, a 3D model of baritone Georg Ots has been unveiled.
Georg Ots, born in 1920, was a well-known Estonian opera singer. He worked in the Estonian National Opera from 1944 until the end of his life.
The sculptor of Erika Haggi's original bas-relief of Georg Ots was on the passenger ship Georg Ots, which sailed between Helsinki and Tallinn, but was lost when the ship was illegally sold for scrap in 2012.
The Theater and Music Museum has a plaster copy of the bas-relief which will now be remade under the guidance of sculptor Elo Liiv, ETV current news show "Aktuaalne kaamera" reported on Sunday.
Toomas Lepp, the leader of Georg Ots' bas-relief restoration, said: "We had a problem with how we can make a copy of it. We made a 3D-print. The print is on the wall right now and is waiting for the bronze to be cast, which is happening in about a month. We raised money in Hooandja (a co-financing platform - ed), we got €8,500 in total. Many thanks to all the supporters,"
This year it was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Georg Ots.
A premier of the documentary "Georg Ots, hetked võsul" ("Georg Ots, moments in Võsu") was also planned to be shown on Sunday but was canceled due to technical reasons.
