A 3-D portrait of Russian President Vladimir Putin has been launched at the library in the city of Krasnoyarsk.The portrait looks like a normal picture, but with a transparent 3-D President’s face being attached to it. This creation has been launched within the nationwide "Night of the Arts."

The authors of the portrait say the 'face' of the Kremlin’s Head has been adapted on purpose and is fully accessible to blind and visually impaired people. Now Putin will ‘come in touch’ with his people even closer.

Earlier, in April, a similar picture was shown at another exhibition, where MP Sergei Mironov had an opportunity to touch it. Moreover, one can download a lot of printable 3D-models in the Internet. Probably, the latter is an alternative for those who cannot arrive in Krasnoyarsk and ‘feel’ the President’s model since they live too far.
