Nicknames: "3D statue of David of Sassoun", "The Stormy Statue", "The Dark Statue"
Logo: On a dark stormy background, we see a figure. Then, a flash of lightning appears, revealing that it's a closeup of a stone sword. The camera then pans through the sword as we see some wavy textures, with some lightning still flashing. We then see a head of a statue, which is the statue of David of Sassoun. The camera pans out from the statue as we see the statue in full view. Then, a flash of lightning appears, with the text
flashing in. The logo fades out.
Trivia: This logo is created by Triada Studio based in Yerevan.
FX/SFX: Nice CGI animation.
Music/Sounds: An ominous tune with a horn and violin, accompanied by the sounds of thunder, lightning and a sword swinging as the statue appears.
Availability: Seen on releases from the company.
Editor's Note: Not many people are going to sit well with the darkness of the logo, sudden appearance of the statue and music. The fact that it also takes place in a stormy background doesn't help, either.
