This statue was built in 1341 (Solar) by La’al Riahi, painter and sculptor, by the suggestion of Hasan Vojdan Khosh, who himself was a hiker. Amir Shah Ghadami, an army sergeant, who was a hiking coach and ski coach of Iran was chosen as the model for this statue. The reason Amir Shah Ghadami was chosen as the model in making this statue was his collaboration in the rescue operation of a crashed American airplane in the Zard Kooh Bakhtiari mountain, in the below 30 cold, after which he received a medal of merit from John F. Kennedy U.S. president and this statue made the name of Amir Shah Ghadami immortal.
