Rudolf Nureyev, one of the most celebrated ballet dancers of the 20th century, died on January 6, 1993. He is buried in Russian cemetery in Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois close to Paris. In 1996 his friends and admirers built a beautiful memorial to him in the shape and colors of the Oriental kilim rugs which Nureyev loved to carry with him. The carpet, designed by his artist friend Ezio Frigerio, is made of mosaic tiles of several shades of red, blue and gold. #cemetery #grave #memorial…
