Statue of Ostap Veresai

~~ Wonderful, wonderful life history here... ~~

Ostap Mykytovych Veresai (Ukrainian: Остап Микитович Вересай), (1803 - 1890) was a renowned minstrel and kobzar from the Poltava Governorate of the Russian Empire (in today's Ukraine). He, like no other, helped in the popularity of kobzar art not only in his country, but also outside its borders.
